Beautifully read by Katherine Kellgren! The smart, patient, level-headed, but loving governess, Penelope Lumley, works miracles with the three darling "Incorrigibles", realizing immediately that they simply need care and understanding to develop into "normal" children after having been raised by wolves. Penelope defends the children against the curiosity and evils of the other adults who visit Ashton Place, as well as the young, dim-witted Lady Constance, who can't be bothered with the challenges of caring for these "wild" children her husband insisted on adopting. The story ends without tying up several mysteries, leaving the reader to long for the next installment (The Hidden Gallery).The narrator injects humorous asides explaining some vocabulary and hyperbole and occasionally compares situations from the 19th century with those of today. A fun, mysterious, read for middle graders who enjoyed the wit of Lemony Snicket in his Series of Unfortunate Events.
