„Please turn me into a werewolf”

                                             

„Please turn me into a werewolf” is my illustration story inspired by the old Estonian folk sayings of transformation becoming a werewolf. 
According to traditions, You had to wallow on large stone in Thursday evening, at the same time saying these words:

Niuh-Näuh nahk selga,

siuh-säuh saba taha,

kriuh-kräuh kõrvad pähä

/

snip-snap skin goes on,

click-clack tail goes on,

eewk-weewk ears go on.
