The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

“Can you go a little faster? Can you run?”

Long ago, at a time in history that never happened, England is overrun with hungry wolves. But as Bonnie and her cousin Sylvia discover, real danger often lies closer to home. Their new governess, Miss Slighcarp, doesn’t seem at all nice. She shuts Bonnie in a cupboard, fires the faithful servants and sends the cousins far away to a place where they’ll never be found. Can Bonnie and Sylvia outwit wicked Miss Slighcarp and her wolfish network of criminals, forgers and snitches?
