The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place
review 1: This is a review of the first 4 books of this series, taken as a whole. They each felt like a very short, incomplete book on their own - like sections of a larger novel. Although Wood still did a great job of wrapping up current action and mysteries in each book, while leading you towards more questions for the next. Can't wait for the last two books!I loved meeting Penelope Lumley, the young governess, and her Wolfy charges! These books are so fun and charming and the characters are awesome. The children are individuals despite being raised together by wolves in the woods. The bad guys are classic and even the good guys are mysterious. Lots of foreshadowing but some twists and turns too. And hopefully a little romance soon!These are silly and smart. They feel a bit like L... moreemony Snicket but without the gloom and bad attitudes. I heard they are like the Mysterious Benedict Society series but I haven't read those so I'm not sure. I highly recommend The Incorrigibles for kids 8 or 9 and up. And for grown ups!
review 2: Book two of the series of The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place is called The Hidden Gallery. What can I say? The plot thickens and the wolf children are becoming more educated and slightly more civilized. Their governess Miss Penelope Lumley is taking the children by train to London. The family will be taking up residence there while work is being done on Ashton Place. Miss Lumley is given a guide to London that is rather peculiar and also rather useless. She meets many interesting characters in London from the moment she departs the train. And is there is slight hint of romance in her encounters of Simon Harley-Dickinson?This is the most fun read I have had in a long time! The characters are so full of life that they come to life as the story unfolds. The writing of Maryrose Wood is ingenious but what brings it even more to life is the amazing job of narration of Katherine Kellgren! She is perfection when it comes to reading a good book. I am so looking forward to the next in this series. less
