A spooky, old-fashioned mystery just in time for Halloween! When Sylvia and Bonnie’s parents leave Willoughby Chase for a sea voyage, they are left in the care of Miss Slighcarp, a cruel governess who soon takes over their once happy home. Willoughby Chase quickly becomes overrun by wolves, their servants are dismissed, possessions sold. Then they’re dressed in rags and sent to an orphan school. Fortunately, they’ve become friends with a goose boy Simon who once lived on the property. With his help how will they manage to escape? Where will they go to once they do? Finally, will they be able to free Willoughby Chase from the evil Miss Slighcarp? A classic recommended for ages 9+!

Have a BOO-tiful day!  (Ha, man do we love puns around here.)
