DetailsThe Incorrigible Children of Ashton PlaceOf especially naughty children, it is sometimes said: "They must have been raised by wolves." The Incorrigible Children actually were.Found running wild in the forest of Ashton Place, the Incorrigibles are no ordinary children: Alexander, age ten or thereabouts, keeps his siblings in line with gentle nips; Cassiopeia, perhaps four or five, has a bark that is (usually) worse than her bite; and Beowulf, age somewhere-in-the-middle, is alarmingly adept at chasing squirrels. Luckily, Miss Penelope Lumley is no ordinary governess.Only fifteen years old and a recent graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, Penelope embraces the challenge of her new position. But mysteries abound at Ashton Place:Who are these three wild creatures, and how did they come to live in the vast forests of the estate?Why does Old Timothy, the coachman, lurk around every corner?Will Penelope be able to teach the Incorrigibles table manners and socially useful phrases in time for Lady Constances holiday ball?And what on earth is a schottische?Penelope is no stranger to mystery, as her own origins are also cloaked in secrecy. But as Agatha Swanburne herself once said, "Things may happen for a reason, but that doesnt mean we know what the reason is - at least, not yet."ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Maryrose Wood is the author of The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, a contnuing series about the Incorrigible children and their governess.
