The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious HowlingThe Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Penelope Lumley, 15 years old and newly graduated from the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, is hired as governess to three children at Ashton Place. The three children, it turns out, were literally raised by wolves on the estate's grounds. Will Penelope be able to turn the children respectable in time for the estate's grand Christmas party, or will they continue to be distracted by squirrels?



This book, while intended for younger readers, has a lot to endear itself to older ones. At times, it is laugh-out-loud hysterical, with satire that may go over the heads of younger readers but enough action to keep it interesting for them.
