Staff notes: We love books about animals trying to be posh. In this new junior novel by Lucinda Griffiths we meet Boris and his family, who are wolves. But they’re not just any old wolves – they’re high class, they’ve got taste. And so when they find out Scotland is reintroducing wolves into the forests they decide to holiday there… And book themselves into the exclusive Highland Hotel. No woodlands, no forests, no camping for them! Delicious funniness about being a little bit… unexpected.
A deliciously funny tale, with equally amusing illustrations, about being judged for what, rather than who, you are.
When Boris and his parents learn that Scotland is re-introducing wolves, they leave their mansion in Morovia for their Scottish homeland.
But these wolves aren’t planning to settle in the wild, oh no! Instead, they book into the exclusive Highland Hotel, from where they plan to enjoy Scotland’s best tourist spots and cuisine.
Is Scotland ready for holidaying wolves? Especially such hungry ones? And why are certain people so unhappy to see them? From spooky dungeons to scheming developers, the Greycoats’ new adventure is full of surprising discoveries.
