This post is part of the 2015 Classics ChallengeWHEN I Discovered This ClassicI actually don t think I had heard of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase until I discovered the Vintage Children s Classics my favourite series of children s classics I just love the design and the selection of well known and lesser known classics I bought I Capture the Castle in 2012 followed by The Wolves of Willoughby Chase The Dark is Rising Fly Away Home and Charlotte Sometimes in 2013WHY I Chose to Read It It was freezing in February and I was looking for a wintry classic to read as part of the challenge It had been sitting on my TBR for a while and I hadn t picked up a Vintage Children s Classic for a while even though I own uite a few now It s also meant to be adapted as a BBC drama this Christmas but I have not heard any about it since it was first announced in 2013 I really hope it goes aheadWHAT Makes It A ClassicIt s a classic children s adventure story full of beautiful descriptions of the landscape treacherous characters and a thrilling mystery to solve It has a bunch of characters from Bonnie and Sylvia themselves to the adult servants that aid their mission that you ll be rooting for all the way A debate arises now and again about how dark children s and young adult literature has become but you only have to meet Miss Slighcarp and her allies to realise it has always been that way they re truly ghastly Although The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is over 50 years old its themes of friendship class gender and the tendency of adults to underestimate children still resonate todayWHAT I Thought of This ClassicI adored it instantly I was fascinated by the idea of an alternative Britain where wolves may attack at any time I expected the story to be about the wolves but it s actually about how the wolves aren t the real enemy here It s wonderfully written and I loved the vivid descriptions of Willoughby Chase from the stark white landscape to Bonnie s delightful toy room It has secret passages charming characters like Simon the gooseboy and a story that doesn t patronise children It has everything you could want I m looking forward to reading Black Hearts at Battersea the next bookWILL It Stay A ClassicI think so It still feels fresh and exciting I hope the forthcoming BBC drama does the book justice and encourages people to read this wonderful story And once you ve done that there s 11 books in the series for you to readWHO I d Recommend It ToPeople who love children s books and want to delve into the world of classics People who love children s adventure and mystery stories like the Laura Marlin mysteries People who love how atmospheric Gothic literature can be like Jane Eyre I also reviewed this book over on Pretty Books
