The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

A much loved classic. This is the kind of book that had me reading with a torch under the covers: it may have a dark aspect to it but it was certainly one I could not put down. Despite the Wolves outside, the real danger is Miss Slighcarp who takes over Willoughby Chase and unfairly punishes cousins Bonnie and Sylvia. The first book in a series of twelve (see The Wolves Chronicles), this is great for children who enjoy getting stuck into one particularly fascinating world.
