From the Back Cover
Of especially naughty children, it is sometimes said: "They must have been raised by wolves." The Incorrigible children actually were.
Thanks to their plucky governess, Penelope Lumley, Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia are much more like children than wolf cubs 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.
Yet the Incorrigibles are not entirely civilized, and 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. As they explore the city, Penelope and the Incorrigibles discover more about themselves as clues about the children's—and Penelope's own—mysterious past crop up in the most unexpected ways. . . .

We bought the audiobook and listened to it on the way to and from school. The person reading is absolutely brilliant and definitely needs a raise. She brought the story to life and made us laugh out loud. The word, "Maaayyyheeemm" with raised fist has entered into our family's lexicon.
Very highly recommended, both book and audio. I'm pretty frugal and like my audiobooks to be between $1 and $5. This audiobook falls well out of that range, but was worth every penny. Absolutely brilliant. We bought the next story immediately finishing this one.
I love these books because they combine the Gothic mysteriousness from classics that I love, with the whimsical fun and craziness of a children's book. My one compliant with this book is that I felt like the ending was not satisfactory. The action just started to jumble together and was resolved in an odd way that left way more questions than answers. Actually the entire book just brings in more questions and doesn't answer any of the old ones raised from the first book. But despite my frustration with this, I still enjoyed the act of reading this story and going along with these characters on their mysterious fun journey.
