In a period of English History that never happened, when Good King James III is on the throne, and the whole country is ravaged by wolves which have migrated through the newly-opened Channel Tunnel. When orphans Bonnie and Sylvia fall into the hands of evil Miss Slighcarp, they need all their wits - and the help of Simon the goose-boy - to escape unscathed, for the governess is more cruel and merciless than the wolves that surround the great house of Willoughby Chase.

Filled with brilliantly-drawn Dickensian characters, it would make an excellent choice for strong preteen readers who like an old-fashioned story with a strong plot and good characterisation. This book often appears on lists of best-loved children's books.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wild and evocative fantasy, stylishly told, with a tremendous romantic appeal * Observer *
Altogether an invigorating book, in which the wit and nonsense make such a sparkling fizz together that it is hard to tell one from the other * Times Educational Supplement *
One genuine small masterpiece. Almost a copy-book lesson in those virtues that a classic children's book must possess * Time magazine *
Joan Aiken is a marvel -- Philip Pullman * The Guardian *

“The Wolves of Willoughby Chase”

Read this book as a 12 year old (16 years ago). Sadly the only thing I can remember about it now is that I absolutely loved it.

“A classic!”

I am ashamed to say I had never read any Joan Aiken before this one, but I absolutely loved it! It's a classic adventure story, and is perfect for fans of Lauren St. John and Eva Ibbotson. I love Bonnie, she was... More

“Classic page turning”

I hope my older great niece enjoys this as much as my own children did over 30 years ago.
I have got her parts 2 & 3 of the series as I think she may run out of book before she runs out of holiday!
