Jane Eyre meets Lemony Snicket in an audiobook read by Katherine Kellgren

The Incorrigibles: Three children raised by wolves; wild creatures found in the forest surrounding Ashton Place & taken into the care of Lord Ashton, obsessed hunter of wild forest creatures.
The Governess: Miss Penelope Lumley, recent graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, determined to civilize & educate the incorrigibles.
Ashton Place: A vast, grand isolated estate shrouded in secrets, its silence disturbed by a mysterious howling coming from behind the attic door.

The reader is excellent. How does she know how children raised by wolves speak? I don’t know but she nails it. This title is for grades 4-6 but anyone who likes their mysteries with a little humor and a lot of charm will like it too. The good news – Book 2 will be released in February 2011. I can’t wait to visit Ashton Place again.
