Since returning from London, the three Incorrigible children and their plucky governess, Miss Penelope Lumley, have been exceedingly busy. Despite their wolfish upbringing, the children have taken up bird watching, with no unfortunate consequences--yet. And a perplexing gift raises hard questions about how Penelope came to be left at the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, and why her parents never bothered to return for her. But theirs are not the only families with mysteries to solve. When Lord Fredrick’s long-absent mother arrives with the noted explorer, Admiral Faucet, gruesome secrets tumble out of the Ashton family tree. And when the Admiral’s prized racing ostrich gets loose in the forest, it will take all the Incorrigibles’ skills to find her. The hunt for the runaway ostrich is on. But Penelope is worried. Once back in the wild, will the children forget about books and poetry, and go back to their howling, wolfish ways? What if they never want to come back to Ashton Place at all?

  • Laura

    Delightful, as usual with wordplay and nonsense, but I was hoping for more questions to be answered than raised. This book felt a bit more like it was stringing me along to the next one without resolv...

  • Dolores

    I really love this series, although this one wasn't quite as wonderful as the first two. 'Course, that's like saying the "Mona Lisa" isn't quite as wonderful as the "The Last Supper". This really is s...

  • Stephanie P (Because My Mother Read)

    I listened to this one as an audiobook and the narration by Katherine Kellgren continues to be superb. It's such a fun and entertaining story and the clever writing of Maryrose Wood pairs perfectly wi...
