Publisher's Summary

Of especially naughty children, it is sometimes said, "They must have been raised by wolves." The Incorrigible children actually were.
Thanks to the efforts of Miss Penelope Lumley, their plucky governess, Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia are much more like children than wolf pups now. They are accustomed to wearing clothes. They hardly ever howl at the moon. And for the most part, they resist the urge to chase squirrels up trees.
Despite Penelope's civilizing influence, the Incorrigibles still managed to ruin Lady Constance's Christmas ball, nearly destroying the grand house. So while Ashton Place is being restored, Penelope, the Ashtons, and the children take up residence in London. Penelope is thrilled, as London offers so many opportunities to further the education of her unique students.
But the city presents challenges, too, in the form of the palace guards' bearskin hats, which drive the children wild not to mention the abundance of pigeons the Incorrigibles love to hunt. As they explore London, however, they discover more about themselves as clues about the children's and Penelope's mysterious past crop up in the most unexpected ways.

YOU'RE NOT WHERE YOU WERE, AND YOU NOT WHERE YOUR

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.

Too good for kids!

Any additional comments?

I adore this series! Wittily written, and matched with the perfect reader. Lemony Snicket, you've been topped.

Can't wait for the next one!
