Overview

The second book in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place—the acclaimed and hilarious Victorian mystery series by Maryrose Wood, perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket and Trenton Lee Stewart—has a brand-new look.

Thanks to their plucky governess, Miss 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....

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Maryrose Wood's wolf-like incorrigible children are back with the well-composed Miss Penelope Lumley as their governess in another wild adventure (2011). Following the disastrous Christmas party at the end of The Mysterious Howling (2010, both Balzer + Bray), Ashton Place is under repairs. To escape from the mess, Lady Ashton moves the entire family, including the children and Penelope, to London where she intends to spend her time with high-society acquaintances and shop in pricey stores. Penelope's plans include exposing the children to as much culture and history as possible. However, everything quickly goes awry as a strange guidebook, a mysterious warning, crazy pirates, and a new friend enter their lives. The story is full of fun and mystery, providing a few new clues into the lives of the children, Penelope, and Lord Ashton. The real treasure here is narrator Katherine Kellgren who brilliantly voices this quirky cast of characters. Listeners will appreciate everything from the engaging but decidedly wolf-like voices of the children to the earnest Miss Lumley and the screeching hysterics of Lady Ashton. Kellgren's pacing is perfect, pulling listeners along breathlessly when the Incorrigibles find themselves in danger and slowing down for a hint of amusement as the narrator adds her diverting asides. Listeners will eagerly await the next installment.—Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT

Product Details

Meet the Author

Maryrose Wood

Maryrose Wood is the author of the first five books (so far!) in this series about the Incorrigible children and their governess. These books may be considered works of fiction, which is to say, the true bits and the untrue bits are so thoroughly mixed together that no one should be able to tell the difference. This process of fabrication is fully permitted under the terms of the author's Poetic License, which is one of her most prized possessions.

Maryrose's other qualifications for writing these tales include a scandalous stint as a professional thespian, many years as a private governess to two curious and occasionally rambunctious pupils, and whatever literary insights she may have gleaned from living in close proximity to a clever but disobedient dog.

Jon Klassen grew up in Niagara Falls, Canada, and now lives in Los Angeles, California. He is the Caldecott Award-winning author and illustrator of I Want My Hat Back and This Is Not My Hat, as well as the illustrator of Sam and Dave Dig a Hole and Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett; The Dark by Lemony Snicket; House Held Up by Trees by Ted Kooser; Cats' Night Out by Caroline Stutson; and the first three books in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series.

    Delightful

    I've thoroughly enjoyed the first two in the series.The language is well chosen and expressions explained. We received it as a gift for my six year old son. He was bored with the early chapters of the first book and Iam glad, because as an adopted child he might have found th rest of the book rather terrfying.

    Hilarious Middle Grade

    Charming, hilarious, and full of page turning fun, Maryrose Wood's The Hidden Gallery is middle grade fiction at its finest.

    The Hidden Gallery opens up just as Miss Penelope Lumley, governess to the three "wolf cubs" Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia, learns that they as well as the Ashtons will be making a trip to London. Even though this trip is due to serious repairs the house is under because of the children, Penelope is nothing short of excited. She is looking forward to not only visiting London and seeing her old governess, but getting away from the troubles that have seem to follow her and the children lately. However, after a mysterious, haunting warning, Penelope, Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia are left on a wild goose chase, which involves meeting new people, mysterious fortunetellers, and hidden galleries. Will everything turn out okay in the end? Will Penelope's as wells as the children's true origins ever come into play? Only time and more pages can tell in this exciting adventure!

    First, the characters in The Hidden Gallery were nothing short of the funny lovable ones readers hope to find in books. Penelope was savvy, smart, and likable, and I always loved her, as well as Agatha Swanburne's, random spurts of wisdom thrown in. On the other hand, the children were lively and chaotic little things that nearly always managed to still the spotlight with their interesting appearances. The other characters in this managed to be the same, because from the spoiled Lady Ashton to the other unique staff, I was continually chuckling due to their dialogue and actions.

    The plot of this was another high point. One thing I always love about middle grade fiction is the fact that there is also a lot of action and fun, and Maryrose had ample amounts of both in The Hidden Gallery. I was repeatedly flipping the pages, dying to know what would happen next. Would Penelope and the children ever find out the truth behind the mysterious occurrences? Better yet, what about their backgrounds- did they have something to do with it? There was not a moment where I was not completely immersed in the story.

    Wood's writing was also great! I loved how she never once dumbed the story, instead presented a complex story filled with intricate yet necessary details and backstory that I am sure children, teens, and may even adults will enjoy. The only thing I would have liked more of was character development, but as there are more books to come in the series, I am sure the characters will have plenty of room to develop.

    In all, if you read one middle grade book this year, let it be Maryrose Wood's The Hidden Gallery. Full of twists and turns to keep nearly any reader happy, I am sure it will become a fan favorite. Especially for fans of Stephanie Burgis' Kat, Incorrigible and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events series. I can only hope the next addiction will be as good.

    Grade: A+
