The children of Ashton Place actually were raised by wolves…

Miss Penelope Lumley is nervous about starting her first real job as a governess. She expects challenges in her quest to instill the wonders of knowledge into young minds, but she never expected her wards to be children who actually were raised by wolves. As creative and determined as her training at the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, Miss Lumley is up to the job- even though she has to add bathing and proper use of clothing to her curriculum of French, Latin, and history. Lovers of word play and clever sayings ala Lemony Snicket will enjoy this book, and the unsolved puzzle of what exactly is making the strange noise behind the wall has me anxiously awaiting book two of "The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place."
