A cute read!
on 14 December 2014
The Mysterious Howling is centred around Miss Penelope Lumley who leaves her school in order to apply for a governess job for three children at Ashton Place. The advert emphasises that the governess has to be good with animals. As Penelope arrives at Ashton Place she finds out the three children are naked and wild. They were found by Lord Ashton in the woods. It’s clear that the children have been raised by wolves. Penelope takes on the task of socialising and teaching the children.
The Mysterious Howling is a great read. It felt like I was reading an old classic. It really does have an old-fashioned Enid Blyton-esque feel to it. I absolutely loved the main character Penelope. I adored how she wanted to educate and socialise the young children. Although I have a slight criticism- the children were socialised quickly without much depth, but that’s a minor niggle really. I’m certainly interested to see where this series goes. It certainly has a lot of potential!
