Christmas at Greycoat Hall is time for festivities, feasting, presents – and more feasting. But why are valuables disappearing? And who is the mysterious Cerberus Schwartz?

The Wolves of Greycoat Hall has been described by the Sydney Morning Herald as "an absolute winner, teeming with humour, whimsy and warmth". This third book in the series finds Boris at back at home in Morovia - a country of fairy tale forests, Medieval alleyways and quirky Wolfish traditions.


Lucinda Gifford is the author and illustrator of many well-loved children’s books. She was brought up in the north of Scotland, where there are a million times more seagulls than humans. To get away from the seagulls, Lucinda went to Edinburgh to study architecture. After this she had a fantastically successful career in advertising, coming up with over-the-top campaign ideas and doodling masterpieces on a big pad of paper. Years later, Lucinda realised that her favourite things were doodling and exaggerating. So she put some of her best drawings and most unlikely stories in a folio and started looking for work in children’s books.

Lucinda has since illustrated over 30 books, eight of which she has also written. She lives in Melbourne, Australia. But sometimes, from her studio, she can still hear the squawk of the gulls and the roar of the North Sea. Her favourite things to draw include wolves, dragons and castles.


The third in this series is just as fun as the first two as well, with cahoots and laughter alongside the worries. This fantastic book and series is well worth the read if your child is after something a little quirky that will capture their imaginations.
