Books For Children

Wolfstongue and The Fox’s Tower are novels for young readers. Wolfstongue is about a boy with speech difficulties who encounters the talking beasts of folklore. The New Statesman said: ‘gripping and profound, Wolfstongue may be for children but it is about being human’.
The Fox’s Tower returns to Wolfstongue’s world of talking animals. When her dad is kidnapped by foxes, Willow travels into the Forest to get him back from the animal civilization that Reynard has created. Piers Torday called the book ‘startlingly original’.
