LoveReading View on The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

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 Wolves of Willoughby Chase Synopsis

Set in 1832, at a time in English history that never happened, when Good King James III was on the throne and the frozen North Country was full of wolves, a little girl called Bonnie was waiting at dusk for her orphan cousin Sylvia to come from London to keep her company, and for the arrival of her new guardian who is in charge when her parents go abroad.

The guardian Miss Slighcarp turns out to be as wicked as the wolves that roam outside. She shuts Bonnie in a cupboard, put some orphans inthe dungeons and dismisses all the kind servants. And then she sends Bonnie and Sylvia far away where they would never be found in order to steal their home, but she doesn't know how clever and resourceful the little girls are.
