9780099972501: The Wolves of Willoughby Chase (Red Fox Older Fiction)

It is winter in 1820, and timid Sylvia and tomboy Bonny are left in the care of their governess when Bonny's parents go on a cruise. Their beautiful home, Willoughby Chase, is surrounded by wolves, brought out by the cold, but none of them is as cruel and evil as the governess, Miss Slighcarp.

Review:

It's 19th-century England during the reign of King James II, but it's not the England we know from the history books. This country is overrun with wolves that roam the forests, providing the perfect setting for a witty and dramatic story spanning the whole country, from the frozen North to the city of London, and peopled with all manner of evil governesses and ancient aunts.

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. (Ages 10 to 12) EN

Review:

"A writer of wild humour." -"Oxford Companion to Children's Literature"
