The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place #1* Maryrose Wood

An amazing book, it had me gripped from the first page. It follows the tale of three children found in the woods  by the lord of Ashton Place, Mr Frederick Ashton, and their governess, Miss Penelope Lumley, as she tries to eliminate their canine tendencies. They include howling, chasing squirrels and fetching things in their mouths. nevertheless, Miss Lumley is not deterred in her mission to ready the children for human life. But mysteries lurk around Ashton Place. Why is Old Timothy always hiding around corners? And what is the mysterious howling coming from behind the attic wall?

A couple of negative things are the old-fashioned words used in the book and the way the writer veers off the subject at some points in the book. But I would recommend this book to anyone because it is funny and mysterious at the same time

*I couldn’t fit the whole title in so I just wrote #1. The whole title is ‘The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling.’
