Amazon.de

It's 19th-century England during the reign of King James II, but it's not the England we know from the history books. This country is overrun with wolves that roam the forests, providing the perfect setting for a witty and dramatic story spanning the whole country, from the frozen North to the city of London, and peopled with all manner of evil governesses and ancient aunts.

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. (Ages 10 to 12) EN -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

Researchers constantly find that reading to children is valuable in a variety of ways, not least of which are instilling a love of reading and improved reading skills. With better parent-child bonding from reading, your child will also be more emotionally secure and able to relate better to others. Intellectual performance will expand as well. Spending time together watching television fails as a substitute.

To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a younger child. The Wolves of Willoughby Chase was one of her picks.

We discovered this wonderful book through a school assignment. It is not a book that I would have expected that our daughter would have liked because the young heroines face terrible trials. She found the book very exciting and rewarding though, and I think you will, too.

Bonnie Green has lived in the lap of luxury in the manor house of Willoughby Chase in the English countryside. Her father, Sir Willoughby, is the richest man for five counties. She has all the toys, clothes, and ponies that anyone could want, and indulgent parents who encourage her to try things out. There is much love in the house, both from her parents and the dedicated household workers.

Because Bonnie's mother, Lady Sophia, has become ill, her parents are about to leave on a sea voyage to restore her health. Sir Willoughby has asked his attorney, Mr. Gripe, to locate a suitable governess and he recommends one who is a fourth cousin once removed of Bonnie's, Miss Slighcarp, who arrives the night before the parents leave.

To keep Bonnie company, Sir Willoughby has also invited Bonnie's cousin Sylvia to stay.

I was first given this book as a gift when I was 11 or 12, and read it over and over for years. It's gone missing within the past 25 years or so, but I never forgot it. It always totally absorbed my interest and started me on a lifelong love of everything English. Now that I know I can get my hands on it again, I'll buy a new copy to read over and over during the second half of my life.

I read this wonderful book to my daughter beginning at age five and continuing through age 10 or so. It was our favorite book to read together and we must have read it five or six times. Joan Aiken has weaved a suspenseful plot driven by strong characters, both good and evil. At the time I began reading "Wolves" to my daughter (1983) it was one of the very few book-length stories I could find that featured girls as heroes--girls who learned to overcome adversity and take care of themselves, with a little help from good friends. Aiken never writes down to her audience, and the vocabulary is quite challenging. But my daughter and I never worried about that too much. I'd read, she'd listen, and over time she figured out the words for herself and added them to her own vocabulary. Today, she's a professional writer herselrf (at age 19 1/2) and I've often thought that the time we spent with Joan Aiken's beautifully structured books had something to do with that!

This book is great! Sylvia goes to live with her cousin Bonnie and they both are treated badly when Bonnie's parents go away on a sea trip by their governess. They are taken to an orphanage when the governess (Miss Slighcarp) starts her plans to take over Willoughby Chase and doesn't have time for them. They escape from the orphange with a little help from their friend, Simon and make their way to London, where they find Sylvia's Aunt Jane. Buy this book or pick it up from the library to find out what happens next. I recommend it to people who like adventures where girls are the heroes, and well-written stories. Joan Aiken's books have girls as the heroes in all of her books that I have read so far. They are really adventurous. DO NOT judge the book before it is finished, because sometimes the most unexpected endings occur. Read this book!

This book was excellent, i have only read it twice but if i could check it out again i would. This book was definately one of the BEST I have ever read. I liked this book because it ranges from exciting, to terror, and then back to happiness. When i was first assigned this book i thought it looked like the stupidest thing i had ever seen. I also thought that Bonnie was a little self-centered snob that was spoiled rotten. As i continued to read i realized that she cared about her cousin and truly cared for the other orphans. I'm one of those people who likes a little bit of blood and gore, throughout the entire book i was waiting for someone to get eaten by a wolf. If someone would have i would have given it 5 stars instead of 4. Overall this was a good book and I look forward to reading other of Joan Aiken's books!

I really loved this book when I was younger, and would be interested to read it again to see if it gives me the same pleasure (a lot of books I used to love don't). I remember liking the contrast between Bonnie and Sylvia - one feisty and impetuous, the other sweet and meek - it makes me think now of the contrast between Jane andElizabeth Bennet, or Bella Wilfer and Lizzie Hexam. Of course I always identified with the feisty one, but you need the sweet mild one for balance. I also loved hearing about their escape from Miss Slighcarp and the awful orphanage-type place where they had to stay. It's true the book is sometimes quite scary and disturbing, but then so is a lot of Roald Dahl and some of the "Mary Poppins" books - I don't think children should be scared too much, but a little adds spice to a story.
