The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Unseen Guest, by Maryrose Wood

The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Unseen Guest. Maryrose Wood. Book Review: Miss Lumley has been instructing the Incorrigibles in birdwatching (rather than bird-catching-and-eating), when the long-absent widow Ashton arrives at Ashton Place with her new beau, Admiral Faucet, and a rather impressive bird specimen. When the Admiral's racing ostrich escapes into the woods, the Incorrigibles' very specialized skills are needed... but if let into the forest to track it, will the Incorrigibles fall back into their wild ways? This book does a great job of keeping the mysteries going, while still providing enough clues to satisfy the reader. As usual, it left me in stitches. [Image shows Miss Lumley astride an ostrich, and each of the Incorrigibles (two boys and a girl) astride wolves, running through the woods.]

Good for: kids and up! Heck, get all the Incorrigible Children books for the art alone.

Every time I finish an Incorrigible Children book (The Mysterious Howling, The Hidden Gallery), I try to find out when the next one is coming, and the next one isn't scheduled until March again and I have no idea what to do with myself in the meantime! Ahwooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
