My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the third book in this series and there are a few new character: Lord Ashtons's mother and her companion, Admiral Faucet. Admiral would very much like to be the good lady's husband and he brings along a prized racing ostrich. The admiral would like to start a new business racing ostrich and, when they are too old to race, sell them for eating. Unfortunately, Bertha gets loose and the Admiral enlists Miss Penelope Lumley and her charges, the wolf raised children. Penelope is concerned that the children will become wild again if left in the forest. Her concern is doubled when she learns that Lord Ashton, who is almost blind, will be going on the hunt. Miss Penelope is aided in the woods by some real wolves and the children don't suffer any of the mishaps she feels, but there are even more mysteries to handle when they return from the woods.
