About the Author:

Ian Whybrow is best known for his original humour and he always writes with adult readers as well as young ones in mind. He has a brilliant ear for voices and takes pride in the fact that his work readsaloud very well. He lives in Harrow-on-the-Hill and teaches at the John Lyon School. He has a house in Herefordshire where he does the bulk of his writing, during the school holidays. His wife Ann is also a teacher and they have two daughters, one of whom is Lucy Whybrow, the actress.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-In this sequel to Little Wolf's Book of Badness (1999) and Little Wolf's Diary of Daring Deeds (2000, both Carolrhoda), the feisty cub once again charms young audiences. Little Wolf; his cousin and best friend, Yeller; his little brother, Smellybreff; and their friend Stubbs Crow are opening Haunted Hall, "THE BEST SCHOOL FOR BRUTE BEASTS." When Little asks the ghost of his late uncle, Bigbad Wolf, to star as the School Spirit and resident spook, the deceased villain bets his nephew that he can't find a student brave enough to stand up to him for five minutes. If Little Wolf loses the bet, Uncle will return to his grave forever; if he wins, Bigbad promises to retrieve his nephew's gold, which was scattered all over Frettnin Forest in a previous book. Normus, a fearless cub, meets the challenge, but before Uncle can pay up, Mister Twister, a sinister fox, steals him. In the end, Haunted Hall has closed its doors, but Little Wolf and company have opened the Yelloweyes Forest Detective Agency. The author continues the series style of Little Wolf writing to his parents, and some handwritten or crossed-out words, blobs of ink, and phonetic misspellings mimic the look of child-written letters. Ross's amusing cartoons perfectly complement the humorous text. Fans of the series will enjoy the further adventures of these characters, and newcomers will have no trouble following the story.
