Gr 4-6--"Were you raised by wolves?" is a common question when children behave in an unruly manner. In Maryrose Wood's witty gem (HarperCollins, 2010), the answer is "Yes!" On a hunting trip, Lord Fredrick Ashton discovers three wild, naked children and decides to bring them home. His wife is too spoiled to care for feral children, so she hires Penelope Lumley to be their governess. Penelope's primary responsibility is to prepare the children for a holiday party that will occur in just a few months. All goes according to plan, and the children impress the guests with their etiquette and education. But a troublemaker's scheming threatens to undo all of their hard work, and their future at Ashton Place is uncertain. The tale concludes with several unanswered questions, building anticipation for the next volume in this excellent new series. Katherine Kellgren brilliantly narrates the tale which is told from Penelope's perspective; she also gives unique, convincing voices to the entire cast of characters. Listeners will particularly enjoy her interpretation of the children's speech patterns, including life-like wolf noises. Her knack for pacing heightens tension at the appropriate moments. With an exceptional story and first-rate narration, this audiobook is a must-have for library collections.--Amy Holland, Hamlin Public Library, NY[Page 58]. Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
