    This book is rather good but it isn’t my favourite . when Sylvia goes to her cousin Bonny because her aunt is to old she is taught by miss Slighcarp ,a mean lady who sends them to a orphan school. They are not treated well so ,with the help of a friend they escape .

    I really enjoyed reading this book because it is very exciting and full of adventures! It has a very unexpected ending and even though the girls have a tough time while their parents are away, it all turns out all right! I love the way the writer describes the story because it makes it sound like this period in history actually existed, and that’s pretty impressive. I’d recommend this book to anyone!

    Absolutely amazing! I love love love this book and my favourite character is Bonnie, I love the way she is so determined and bold even though she is kind hearted. When I went away I wanted to read it so badly that I used my pocket money to buy a copy even though I had it at home. I recommend it to anyone and everyone who can read chapter books on their own.

    Although lot’s of people love this book I wasn’t a big fan of it. I do think it was a good book it just wasn’t my style. It had lot’s of description it still didn’t come to my satisfaction, so if you’re like me don’t read it.

    This was a real page turner. Packs of ravenous wolves running through a tunnel built under the sea from France 200 years ago (the book is set in an alternative history of England that never happened) were especially fantastic – but I was quite sure that Miss Slighcarp would end up being eaten by the wolves and a bit disappointed when she wasn’t! The book has a memorable last sentence: ‘And though the house [Willoughby Hall] had witnessed many strange scenes, wolf hunts and wine-drinking and weddings and wars, it is doubtful whether during its whole history any of its inmates had had such adventures as those of Sylvia and Bonnie Green.’ So, you must want to read those adventures, surely…

    I quite liked this book but not amazing. I didn’t like how the wolves were just kind of lurking in the background and it was mostly the governess doing the dirty work.

    I really liked this book. It was really amazing when Simon made an escape for Bonnie and I forgot the other girls name. Also when the wolves came through the tunnels to England.

    This book was one of the best books I have ever read in my life. I recommend it to anyone who is able to read chapter books alone. I would happily read this again but first I have to read all my other books.
