The Mysterious Howling (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place #1)

The Mysterious Howling (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place #1)The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This delightful series reminds me of A Series of Unfortunate Events.  The combination of understated prose and exquisite vocabulary is enchanting.  I am using the books for homeschool free reading as well as vocabulary.

In this book young Penelope Lumley, graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, has come to Ashton Place to care for the 3 young wards of Lord Ashton. The assignment sounds simple but the children have been raised by wolves and there is something very suspicious about them.
