Ever think your kids behave like they were raised by wolves? Don’t worry—we’ve all been there (and blamed that behavior on the better half’s side of the family). Now our untamed children have a book they can definitely relate to—The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, who were, in fact, raised by wolves.
This clever little book by Maryrose Wood received starred reviews from Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and the School Library Journal (Ms. Wood is such an overachiever!). The first book of one incredible series, The Howling follows 15-year-old Penelope, a recent graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females (lolz) as she embarks on her role as governess at Ashton Place.
In charge of keeping three wild children in line and taming them in time for the Christmas party (sounds familiar, eh?), the book delves into the deeply mysterious, with the reader taken on a true journey at Ashton Place. How did Lord Frederick come upon these kids? Why is Old Timothy around every corner? Can Penelope teach these incorrigible children any manners?
Aimed at ages 8 – 12, we think even you are going to love reading this quirky, sometimes hilarious and unique tale, if nothing but to be reassured that your little terrors aren’t the only kids to have behaved like they were born in the woods.
