A medieval tale of the trial of a werewolf in southern France.
A strange wandering beggar-boy meets a group of French girls who are tending their flocks. He frightens the girls with dreadful stories of souls in Hell and explains that he is a werewolf and describes how at night he ravages the country and devours sheep and children. The boy is arrested and brought before the courts. His testimony is alarmingly frank and astonishingly well corroborated by the evidence of other witnesses.

not much. 30 mins of nothing
while the writing was good, this is hardly worth more than a dollar. not much of a story or even a distraction.
A strange story strangely done
How could the performance have been better?
They could have the narrator drop the fake French accent. That was terrible, and made it very difficult to understand. At first I wondered if that was really the way the narrator spoke, but after finding a few other books that she narrated, no, she just tries to force accents to fit each book she narrates. The other book was a seafaring one, and she was trying to do a pirate accent for that one.
Did Jean Grenier - The French Werewolf inspire you to do anything?
I hope not. It's a book about an insane kid attacking and trying to eat other children.
Any additional comments?
Basically it's just a short story about a curiosity during medieval times. An interesting story, but not really educational or anything.
