Little Wolf and friends are opening their new school where the lessons are Hunting for Gold by day and Haunting and Spooking by night.
Their star attraction is the ghost of Uncle Bigbad who appears in spirit form at midnight – tempted by the smell of ‘bakebeans’.
But the ninth rule of Badness is NEVER trust a Big Bad Wolf and our chums find out that you should NEVER, EVER trust a Big Bad DEAD Wolf! More adventures for our cheeky hero who has to journey to find a bigger and badder ghost than Uncle if the school is to be saved.

Haunted Hall School,
DEAR MUM AND DAD,
Why do you say I have let the pack down being poor again? Because who put rockets under my safe and blew it up into small smithers? Who made my gold go raining all over Frettnin Forest so nobody can find it now? Answer, your darling baby pet Smellybreff. But you never blame him , do you?
But now, listen to 'this' news, it is good. Yeller has just made up a fine advert saying:
ARE YOU JUST A SMALL WEAK FLUFFBALL?
THEN BE A PUPIL AT HAUNTED HALL.
LEARN SECRET POWERS FROM OUR BIGBAD GHOST
LIKE HOW TO POP UP ALL OF A SUDDENLY LIKE TOAST
SO COME TO-DEE
AND BRING A LARGE FEE
DO NOT DELAY-EE.
ARRROOO, look out Richness, we are after you again!
L WOLF ESQUIRE
More thrilly times with Little Wolf
When Uncle Bigbad's ghost appears, he is just as BIG and BAD as ever. Little Wolf and Yeller are determined that Uncle's spirit will be the teacher of ghosty powers and star attraction at their new scary school for brute beasts, where lessons will include Walking Through Walls and Shocking for Beginners. With Stubbs Crow teaching Spooksuit Making and Flying; Smellybreff Wolf being a Small Horror and Little and Yeller being Co-Heads, Haunted Hall is definitely going to be the spookiest School in the World!
But will Uncle Bigbad agree? And if he does, will he frighten away all the small horrors?
YOU BET HE WILL! Little wolf must find some small horrors who won't be scared. With Stubbs Crow (and his two new tail feathers) he travels over Frettnin Forest, the Grim Mountains, across the Parching Plain and into Grimshire to find a brute beast brave enough to stand up to Uncle's powers.
