The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling. Maryrose Wood. Book Review: Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia are used to running wild­­—quite literally. They were discovered living in the woods, behaving like wolves. It’s up to their new governess, Miss Penelope Lumley, to housetrain—and try to teach—the three mysterious children. Luckily, Miss Lumley is a graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, and won’t give up easily... This book is very clever and funny and just all-around wonderful. The art by Jon Klassen is fantastic. [Image shows three children on all fours, chasing a squirrel, looking a bit hungry, while a woman runs after them.]

Good for: It’s a fantastical, funny, historical fiction written for kids, but I think it can be enjoyed by all ages! Many reviewers compare it to A Series of Unfortunate Events, but while I could never really get into that series, I really enjoyed this book.

    Did you steal my reading list? Because I swear you have just been checking things off of it lately. I think this book looks fantastic so I’m glad to hear you liked it! Personally I really enjoyed the “Unfortunate Events” series as well.
