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!

    Because a smart phone is exceedingly more efficient than a library at finding information, in just about every way. I don't understand this idea that we should slow our progress specifically to keep books or libraries, or anything else. Of course, I do not think we should get rid of existing libraries or books, but this idea that we need to 'slow down' is completely contrary to everything I feel about technology. We would not reserve ourselves to horse bound carriages when most people can drive a car.

We definitely wouldn't be as far as we are. But I think we should scale back a bit and enjoy the simpler things, like books and libraries.  I agree
