The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Interrupted Tale
Maryrose Wood
Read by Katherine Kellgren
4 Stars

In this fourth edition of the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place Miss Penelope Lumley has been invited to her Alma Matter to speak at the Celebrate Alumnae Knowledge Exposition (the C.A.K.E.). As Penelope is trying to figure out what to say at the CAKE speech she also has to juggle the fact that the evil Judge Quinzy is now controlling the board of trustees of the school (and thus the school) and is making all kinds of trouble.

This series is one of my favorites to listen to as a book on CD. Katherine Kellgren is fabulous at reading the Incorrigible Children’s story. I love how she howls, barks, or adds all of the extra details that come along with wolf children being in the story. The humor is quite fun as well. I love how seriously Penny takes everything…even though it is quite really quite amusing and often not all that serious. I also like how the overall story arc is starting to give a few more answers to all the mysteries that are part of the series. Even though we don’t know a lot, we do know quite a lot more. And with at least two more books planned for the series I didn’t expect all the answers to come. But I like how there are some great hints as to who Penelope is and where the wolf cubs might have come from. Oh, and I really liked how Penny figured out how to get the kids not to eat the chickens…she is really quite a genius.

Oh, I can’t wait for the next book in this series. But the audio book, because that is what I love the most.
