The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood

Miss Penelope Lumley is hired right out of school (Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females) to work as governess for Lord and Lady Ashton.    She is looking forward to starting her job, but nobody will tell her about the children until she discovers them on her own—in the barn, howling like dogs!  It’s then she learns that she has been hired to “civilize” these kids, who have been raised by wolves (really, they howl, bark, and chase squirrels!). 

The book is a cross between Jane Eyre and Lemony Snicket—with emphasis on the Snicket—and is, pardon me, a howl!   Warning: nothing is neatly tied up—the book ends with a cliff-hanger.

More new chapter books!
