The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderful adventure as two children flee from the yranny of their wicked guardian and bravely set out on the road to London. Miss Slighcarp is as chilling as her words sound and she is now in charge of Bonnie and Sylvia. How will they ever escape from her clutches? It would be hard in any circumstances but it is especially hard since the snow lies thick on the ground around Willoughby Chase and the wolves are snapping closer and closer. It’s scary enough, but Bonnie and Sylvia are a determined pair and nothing, not even the wolves are going to stop them from getting back to London and Aunt Jane. Helped on their way by Simon and the flock of geese he is taking to market, Bonnie and Sylvia’s journey is a thrilling adventure – and not for the faint hearted!
The Good Book Guide Review. The first of Joan Aiken's wild Dickensian adventure stories set in the non-existent reign of James III when wolves have crossed from Europe (via the Channel Tunnel) to surround Willoughby Chase outside, and the wicked pro-Hanoverian Miss Slighcarp terrorises her charges within. But the girls are quick-witted, resourceful, brave. . . A treat for imaginative readers with a taste for romantic escapades.
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
Good King James III is on the throne and the country is ravaged by wolves which have migrated through the newly-opened Channel Tunnel. When Sylvia and Bonnie fall into the hands of evil Miss Slighcarp, they must use all their wits to escape unscathed.
