In a period of English History that never happened, when Good King James III is on the throne, and the whole country is ravaged by wolves which have migrated through the newly-opened Channel Tunnel. When orphans Bonnie and Sylvia fall into the hands of evil Miss Slighcarp, they need all their wits - and the help of Simon the goose-boy - to escape unscathed, for the governess is more cruel and merciless than the wolves that surround the great house of Willoughby Chase.
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.

In 1999 Joan Aiken was awarded an MBE for her services to children's books.


A wild and evocative fantasy, stylishly told, with a tremendous romantic appeal
Altogether an invigorating book, in which the wit and nonsense make such a sparkling fizz together that it is hard to tell one from the other
One genuine small masterpiece. Almost a copy-book lesson in those virtues that a classic children's book must possess
Joan Aiken is a marvel
