The Wolves of Willoughby Chase
Illustrated by Bill Bragg

A charming, illustrated edition of Joan Aiken’s much-loved children’s book.
‘The Wolves of Willoughby Chase may well be the most quietly influential children’s fantasy novel of its time’
- Michael Dirda
The first title in Joan Aiken’s acclaimed Willoughby Chase saga, this atmospheric tale tells of cousins Bonnie and Sylvia Green, whose lives are torn apart when their new governess, the evil Miss Slighcarp, threatens to destroy or steal everything they love. Their adventures across a perilous, snow-bound land are brilliantly captured by Bill Bragg’s spirited illustrations. Children’s author Katherine Rundell has written a new introduction that gives fascinating insight into Aiken’s approach to writing for children.
