discovered working wild within the woodland of Ashton position, the Incorrigibles aren't any traditional young children: Alexander, age ten or thereabouts, retains his siblings in keeping with light nips; Cassiopeia, probably 4 or 5, has a bark that's (usually) worse than her chew; and Beowulf, age somewhere-in-the-middle, is alarmingly adept at chasing squirrels.
fortunately, omit Penelope Lumley isn't any traditional governess. merely fifteen years previous and a contemporary graduate of the Swanburne Academy for bad shiny women, Penelope embraces the problem of her new place. notwithstanding she is keen to tutor the kids in Latin verbs and the right kind use of globes, first she needs to support them conquer their dogs trends.
yet mysteries abound at Ashton position: who're those 3 wild creatures, and the way did they arrive to stay within the immense forests of the property? Why does previous Timothy, the coachman, lurk round each nook?
