The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling (2009) Maryrose Wood and Illustrated by Jon Klassen

Penelope Lumpey has just graduated from the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females and now, at the age of 15 must make her way forth in the world.

Luckily for her, a governess position was found by her teacher, and she is off to interview for the position, which will hopefully give her not just a job, but also a home, something she now lacks since she graduated.

Penelope is a smart, no-nonsense young lady who–despite her young age–is ready to make her way in the world.

This is a very fun book. As a grown-up, I can see where some of the story will eventually go, but for an older child, I’m sure much will be Very Mysterious. It also seems there will be many books in the future, which I do believe I am looking forward to.
