The Mysterious Howling

        The Mysterious Howling (in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series) by Maryrose Wood is a very interesting book.  It starts off when 15 year-old Penelope Lumley leaves her boarding school to interview for the mysterious job of being a governess for three children at a huge estate.
It turns out that the young children are wild things that were found in the woods one day when the master, Sir Fredrick, was out hunting.  They are dirty and loud and don't speak English.  They are really sweet, but the problem is that Sir Fredrick and his wife, Lady Constance, think the children are nasty beasts.
And the real trouble happens at the holiday ball.  Read this exciting, unique book to see what happens! I rate it four out of five stars.
