The Wolves of Greycoat Hall

By Lucinda Gifford
Illustrated by Lucinda Gifford

**eBook Edition** A family of wolves leaves their mansion in Moravia, returns to their Scottish homeland and fights for their right to live among society and save the castle that has been in their family for generations from a crooked developer.

Boris Greycoat is a friendly young wolf who likes meeting people and trying new foods. His father Randall Greycoat is becoming an expert in speaking French and playing table tennis. Boris’s mother, Leonora Greycoat, likes to practise her warm, reassuring smiles. Wolves need to look reassuring if they are to flourish in society. Excited to hear the news that wolves are to be reintroduced to Scotland, Boris Greycoat and his parents, Randall and Leonora Greycoat embark on a journey back to their ancestral lands. However, it’s more difficult for wolves to travel than one might think, and it seems that Scotland may not be prepared for sophisticated wolves like the Greycoats. A deliciously funny tale, with equally amusing illustrations, about being judged for what, rather than who you are.

  • A deliciously funny, heavily-illustrated read that will appeal to fans of Alex T. Smith (Claude series) and Chris Riddell.
  • This is a must-read junior fiction novel. It's heavily-illustrated, which will engage young readers, and there's enough sophistication to make parents laugh, too.
  • Important theme: At its heart, this is a story about our very refined wolves being judged for what they are, rather than who they are. Their predicament will resonate with anyone who has ever felt discriminated against.

About the author

Lucinda Gifford works as an illustrator and author from her cosy, messy home studio in Melbourne. After taking a degree in architecture and veering into an advertising career, Lucinda finally took the plunge and started work on her true passion: children's books. In 2014 she was awarded the Five Mile Press Illustrator Prize and, since then, has illustrated over twenty books. She uses pencil, ink, crayon, marker and watercolour to produce her illustrations and usually uses PhotoShop to put everything together. Architecture still fascinates her and she loves to draw all sorts of buildings, especially castles filled with dragons. When not sketching or developing story ideas, Lucinda enjoys plot twists, beach walks and staring out the windows of Melbourne trams.
