The Curse Of The Romany Wolves is a follow-up (or sequel) to S. Jones Rogan’s The Daring Adventures Of Penhaligon Brush. It’s an action-packed book that’s accompanied by amazing black-and-white sketches by illustrator Christian Slade.

The Story

Picking off where The Daring Adventures Of Penhaligon Brush left off, the creatures of Porthleven are suddenly stricken by a terrible and mysterious disease that looks an awful lot like Febra lupi, also known as the curse of the Romany wolves. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for this strange sickness.

But that won’t stop Penhaligon, a brave and boundless fox, from trying to find one and save the citizens of Porthleven! So off he goes to adventure on the high seas, where he takes on nasty pirates and some seriously scary sea creatures!

Finally, Penhaligon finds a tiny piece of parchment that might hold the clue to a cure for the curse of the Romany wolves. According to the parchment, Penhaligon needs to gather up a number of ingredients – unfortunately, each of the items can only be found on Howling Island, which is said to be haunted.

Penhaligon, who’s just finished facing fierce enemies (pirates, sea serpents, double-crossing ferrets!) on the high seas, figures the ghosts of Howling Island are nothing compared to what he’s just been through. So off he goes to find the cure – but will he make it back in time to save the village of Porthleven?

You’ll have to read The Curse Of The Romany Wolves to find out!

    Well, I'm not sure if any of you knew, (I might have told Alpha T, but I don't remember if I did) there was an incident which happened at our school. I was a few doors away when it happened, but a person, who was in her class, stabbed a teacher, who I knew and loved, in front of a group of seniors getting ready for their GCSE's. I remember the screaming and commotion caused as she screamed for her pupils to get out. A girl came into my class, screaming that Mrs Maguire had been stabbed.  We saw our teacher rush out of the room.  That day, we were escorted to lessons by teachers. We weren't allowed to go anywhere unless a teacher told us... We were made to stay at the school the whole day, and we were all so worried. Mrs Maguire was a well lived teacher you see. The teachers told us that an 'incident occurred' and we shouldn't worry. The general public knew she died before us... The press were all over the outside of the school, taking photos of us...  (I don't wanna stray too far from the topic) but the guy who did it does deserve the death penalty. I don't care what the cost is and I don't quite care if I'm honest. He killed a teacher that I knew and loved, and I'm sure you would agree that you'd feel the same in that situation... I do. He only got 20 years, (which is apparently life here in the UK.) :angry
