For fans of Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events
and Trenton Lee Stewart’s Mysterious Benedict Society comes the fourth book in
the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, the acclaimed and hilarious
Victorian mystery series by Maryrose Wood.
In The Interrupted
Tale, Miss Penelope Lumley receives an invitation to speak at the annual
Celebrate Alumnae Knowledge Exposition (or CAKE) at the Swanburne Academy for
Poor Bright Females. Optoomuchstic as ever, Penelope hopes to give her CAKE
talk, see some old friends, and show off the Incorrigible children to Miss
Mortimer, but instead she finds her beloved school in an uproar.
And when Penelope is asked by the Swanburne Academy board of
trustees to demonstrate the academic progress of her three wolfish students so
the board can judge the true worth of a Swanburne education, the future of her
alma mater—and of her job as governess to the Incorrigibles—hangs in the
balance. Download and start listening now!
