Alfie can't wait to turn seven like his friend Tim, but something strange is happening. When on his birthday, under the light of the full moon, he sprouts fur, grows fangs and develops a wolfish appetite, it's clear he's doing more than turning seven - he's turning into a WEREWOLF! But it's not all bad - now Alfie's great at gym, has the guts to stand up to the school bully and is invited to parties. Maybe being a werewolf isn't so bad after all?

Alfie Jolly is 59 and unhappy with his life. More specifically, with his birthdays. You see, none of them have been any good and with his sixtieth on its way, Alfie can’t help but think he’s been wronged. Spur of the moment, Alfie decides he wants to return/recycle all of his old birthdays. The only trick now is to find out how. A trip the North Pole, a chat with Father Christmas, and a flight to Egypt later, Alfie meets Father Birthday who, eventually, agrees to help turn back the clock. Literally. Suddenly Alfie is a child again, reliving each birthday and making new and better memories. Like in 1966 when he and his family travel to Disney World, or go to the fair in 1967 or when he relives the moon landing where the love his life, pretty Suzy Gentry, sits next to him on the sofa. His life is great with dancing again in classes and racing around with his twin, but it isn’t long before shadows start creeping in to this dream childhood of never-ending birthdays. Is it a case of be careful what you wish for or be grateful for every moment you have – before it ends?
