Join author Dave Atkinson for the launch of The Wereduck Code October 20 at 2 pm at the Confederation Centre Public Library in Charlottetown. This is the final book in the Wereduck trilogy. Join author Dave Atkinson for a reading and book signing, and treats as you celebrate the quirky (and quacky!) conclusion to this Hackmatack-nominated series. The Wereduck Code is published by Nimbus Publishing.

It’s not easy being a fourteen-year-old wereduck in a family of werewolves. In The Wereduck Code, we catch up with Kate after discovering that an ancient cure for her family’s curse—one she had hoped would mean her family could finally come out of hiding—turned out to be more complicated than that.

The third installment of  Wereduck series finds Kate sending away for a DNA test, thinking it will provide answers. The test’s results are shocking: there appears to be a toggle in human genetic code that is switched on in werewolves. And if that toggle can be switched off, like it was for her best friend John, does that mean it can be switched on? And where is Dirk Bragg? The tabloid journalist-turned-country-music-star—who’s come close to exposing Kate’s family more than once—is suddenly missing. And there’s an anonymous group of hackers called D-Net hot on Dirk’s trail, convinced he can reveal the truth about werewolves once and for all. The thrilling conclusion of the Wereduck series will leave readers on the edge of their seats.

Dave Atkinson is a dad, writer, broadcaster, and pigeon fancier living in Charlottetown. He is the author of the two other books in the Wereduck series: Wereduck and Cure for Wereduck, both nominated for a Hackmatack Children’s Choice Award.

Books will be available for sale from the good folks at The Bookmark.
