I wish this book and I would have crossed paths when I was a child. Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable read. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Saturday morning. Reading a childhood favourite on the balcony.
Back to one of my favourites again! Sylvia and Bonnie skate on thin ice indeed as they're out and about when the wolves are likely to be around.
Yes, today's prompt has defeated me ... I've just gone ahead and replaced the tigers with wolves 😂

Can't believe I never read this as a kid. Has all the elements I love and would have adored as a child - orphans, strong female lead characters, running away, and other assorted adventure...plus a mansion with secret passages. Will be continuing with this series and can't wait to read with my kids. Thanks to Gretchen Rubin for the recommendation. #strongfemalecharacter #childrensclassic
This beloved book was read aloud to my sixth-grade class many, many moons ago. I just finished reading it aloud to my ten-year-old. It's quite the adventure with resourceful children, a happy ending and a rich vocabulary. As well received today as when it was written.
