Fifteen-year-old Miss Penelope Lumley, a recent graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, is hired as governess to three young children who have been raised by wolves and must teach them to behave in a civilized manner quickly, in preparation for a Christmas ball.

    The Willoughbys de Lois Lowry (_Zoe_)
    _Zoe_: Both books play with the idea of the "old-fashioned" children's story and are a lot of fun.

    The Bad Beginning de Lemony Snicket (jfoster_sf)

    The Wolves of Willoughby Chase de Joan Aiken (kaledrina)

    A Drowned Maiden's Hair: A Melodrama de Laura Amy Schlitz (HollyMS)
  5. 00
    Frost Hollow Hall de Emma Carroll (HollyMS)
    HollyMS: Both are middle grade historical fiction set during the Victorian period featuring young girls who go to work in a mysterious old house :] Both Frost Hollow Hall and The Mysterious Howling have obviously been influenced by Victorian gothics.

    The Aviary de Kathleen O'Dell (HollyMS)

    The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall de Mary Downing Hahn (HollyMS)
    HollyMS: Both are modern children's historical fiction that are heavily influenced by 19th century gothic literature.

    Horton Halfpott, or, The Fiendish Mystery of Smugwick Manor, or, The Loosening of M'Lady Luggertuck's Corset de Tom Angleberger (kaledrina)

    L'Habitació de Emma Donoghue (_Zoe_)
    _Zoe_: These books are completely different in style; The Mysterious Howling is a lighthearted children's book while Room is more serious and intended for adults. But if you enjoy the theme of a child with an unusual background being reintegrated into society, you may appreciate both of these books.… (més)

I really liked this one! The characters are well-crafted and the mysteries are beautifully veiled. Can’t wait for the next one! ( )

The cover art, title, and description all lead me to pick up this book. I was expecting a quirky middle grade story but I found myself bored. Nearly 60 pages in and my mind kept wandering so I decided to DNF.

The writing is fine, but tries too hard to be funny. What I’ve read of this book isn’t bad, it’s just not for me. ( )

I picked this one up in my determination to read everything that Jon Klassen is attached to. So of course the illustrations are charming and lovely. The story is also very charming - a naive young lady arrives at her first ever job as governess, to find that the children were actually recently found in the woods and have taken on some rather animal characteristics. Penelope is determined and doesn't let anything faze her so she rolls up her sleeves and begins reading books on animal behaviour and training. She's a great protagonist. She tackles everything to the absolute best of her ability and empathizes with folks and is determined that everyone do well. She's a great governess, the children are wonderful children and learn fast, and of course there are some antagonists who cause issues. This book didn't feel very finished to me - there didn't feel like a lot of wrapping up, even for a book that is the first of a series, but I'll likely read the rest eventually so then I'll know what's going on!

This is just a lovely book. It has all that British flair that I just adore in books and Katherine Kellgren is an amazing narrator (one of the best in my opinion). It was just funny and it doesn't talk down to the reader. I loved the hidden sarcasm. I wanted to be Penelope Lumley. (She kinda reminded me of Anne Shirley) I'd never heard of these books before the YA Syn literature but I am interested in checking out the rest of the audiobooks. ( )

Absolutely loved this book! I kept stopping to read things out loud to my husband and even recommended it to people before I was even close to done with the book.

The story is about a 15 year old girl hired to be the governess for three unruly, rambunctious children who were found in the forest and ostensibly raised by wolves. Part silly slapstick humor with howling children and part English mansion/governess tale, this book was so much better than many of the other books I've seen it compared to.

I have to check out the next book in the series! ( )
