Review:

Joan Aiken is one of the most remarkable writers in modern children's fiction. ( The Sunday Times)

An old-fashioned rattling good yarn, full of extraordinary characters and gloriously rich language ( Adele Geras, TES)

Joan Aiken is a superb storyteller. Even when her stories touch on the dark, mystical side, they pull children with with fascination, not fear ( Sainsbury's Magazine)

Fog Hounds: 'Spellbinding adventures which are modern fairy tales.' ( Aldershot Mail)

A gem from the top-class author of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase ( Birmingham Post)

A collection of manageably short but grippingly exciting tales that will have (children) coming back for more. ( The Lady)

Book Description:

A hugely memorable classic from the highly-acclaimed author of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.
