Of especially naughty children it is sometimes said, "They must have been raised by wolves."

The Incorrigible children actually were.

Thanks to the efforts of Miss Penelope Lumley, their plucky governess, Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia are much more like children than wolf pups now. They are accustomed to wearing clothes. They hardly ever howl at the moon. And for the most part, they resist the urge to chase squirrels up trees.

Despite Penelope's civilizing influence, the Incorrigibles still managed to ruin Lady Constance's Christmas ball, nearly destroying the grand house. So while Ashton Place is being restored, Penelope, the Ashtons, and the children take up residence in London. Penelope is thrilled, as London offers so many opportunities to further the education of her unique students. But the city presents challenges, too, in the form of the palace guards' bearskin hats, which drive the children wild—not to mention the abundance of pigeons the Incorrigibles love to hunt. As they explore London, however, they discover more about themselves as clues about the children's—and Penelope's—mysterious past crop up in the most unexpected ways. . . .

    " This is such a delightful series. The author is constantly teaching while telling the story, but she's teaching in such a fun way that children probably don't recognize that they're learning. This book was much more difficult to put down than the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Cherisse | 2/3/2014

    " Even better than the first of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Anjiebringhurst | 1/31/2014

    " Fun book and great characters. However, the author takes the first 2/3 of the book .... to chatter and things only start happening in the last third of the book. She leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Curse to whoever chose the first one for book club because now I have to finish the series like I am a 12 year old! "

    " AWESOME!!! This one was just as fantastic as the first and left me with lots of mysterious things to think and wonder about until the next book! Also, I really want a collection of all of Agatha Swanburne's fabulous sayings. "
