Author: Brittany Pressley

In fiction shapeshifting is the ability of a being to physically transform into another form or being, either as an creature. For those who don't really know what shapeshifting is it more like you can be normal but you can turn into anything you please, so if you wanted to become a animal you could. When most people think of shapeshifting they think evil but in reality that isn't true. there are seriously books on the topic but i only found two in our library .

"Witches Werewolves and Fairies" and "they suck, They bite, they EAT, They kill." Both books talk about creatures and normal people turning into them. Just by the title you can tell that they are all shapeshifters. In most books you read they have vampires and wolves as shapeshifters are well known  They are what some might call black magic, but in most eyes they are far from that. shapeshifters are very cool and interesting
