Book II is at least as good as Book I which I recently reviewed. This is a continuation of the experiences and adventures of governess Penelope Lumley and her three young charges, Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia. Maryrose Wood wrote this fabulous 6 book series for children, but I'm not being optoomuchistic (the author's word for when one is being too optimistic) to say it can and will be enjoyed by everyone who listens to it regardless of age. Book VI, The Long-Lost Home, is not available at Audible but will hopefully be when it is released in June 2018. The series is set in Victorian England. American actress Katherine Kellgren narrates with her flawless regional British accents.
Audible shows only the first two books as the series. To see all five currently available books in the series search Audible for Maryrose Wood.
I recommend this series for everyone regardless of genre preference. But listen to the books in order! I wish I could award this series 20 stars.

GOING, SO PAY ATTENTION
I know, I am not being OPTOOMUCHSTIC by saying you will greatly enjoy this book. You want to read book one first, which I loved, but I liked this book even better. The story is sweet, silly, funny, LOL and a must. I can't wait for my granddaughters to get old enough to listen to books without pictures. When they can read they will each get copies of this series. All five books for all five granddaughters. This is a book for all ages. Yes, I am talking to you so don't get the WHO ME, SYNDROME.
THE FULCRUM OF FORTUNE
No matter your age you will also benefit from the wisdom of the SWANBURNE ACADEMY for POOR BRIGHT FEMALES of which PENELOPE is a graduate. This book also brings us even more mysteries than the first. Who are Penelope's parents, who are the kids parents, where they dumped in the woods or stolen, are their werewolves at Ashton Place and more. DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE SUPERNATURAL? This book also gets a little more mysterious.
THE MOOD IN THE NURSERY HAD BEGUN TO CURDLE
I was almost in HIGH DUDGEON when I clicked INCORRIGIBLE CHILDREN series and only two books popped up, but when I clicked MAYROSE WOOD, I found Audible had five of the books. I will be purchasing those books.
TEN PARTS TALKING IS HALF AS MUCH AS ON PART DOING
KELLGREN really makes this story come alive. Just as book one, she is very animated.
TIME WILL TELL, BUT ONLY IN HINDSIGHT, AS TIME IS NOT TALKING RIGHT NOW.
