The Wolves of Willoughby Chase was the first of Joan Aiken’s ‘twelve books that formed her Wolves Chronicles. Books set in an alternative England ruled by good Stuart Kings in a Dickensian England tormented by roaming wolves and where travellers ride in steam powered vehicles and hot-air balloons. (Steampunk) The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is an excellent introduction to her work and always seems to be an instant favourite with children that I’ve read it too. Time Magazine called it ‘One genuine small masterpiece’. I will be reading this book as a serial to my students next term. The book has been in print since first published over 50 years ago. This unit is a mere $3.00.
