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.

    The Sixty-Eight Rooms de Marianne Malone (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)

Narrated by Katherine Kellgren.

This book was *made* to be listened to on audiobook. I don't think you'd get half as much out of it by reading the printed version. ( )

I don't know why, but this book leaves me cold. I really hoped the author would go into the hunting children thing. It's ghoulish, but I thought it would make for a better story.

Also, the "-awoo" ending to their words annoyed me. But I dislike dogs a lot. ( )

Well, this is a book that turns ridiculous up to ten, and then just runs away with it. I can only hope there will be more offended cat noises in the future, as they are a delight to my heart. The audio book version of it is superb, with just the right mix of pragmatic governess voice and assorted delightful animal noises. Hilarious, over the top, and full of sound advice. ( )

It's a quaint book aimed at probably early middle graders. The atmosphere is a bit similar to A Series of Unfortunate Events -- the story is set in the past, with a satirical narrator who gives plenty of reference to the readers' modern time, and the story is about adventures encountered by three siblings and their friend(s). But reading this series makes you feel better than reading Lemony Snicket because the three siblings are adorable, and the story ends happily. The illustrations in the book are very, very cute! ( )

If Lemony Snicket wrote victorian books for kids, they might sound like this. While Ms. Wood doesn’t define words nearly as often or succumb to excessive amounts of foreshadowing, she writes with wit and intelligence and tells a wonderful story where the children are the heroes and most of the adults have questionable intentions at best. (The governess is only 15, but she comports herself as an adult, and has charge of the children so she kind of fits into both categories). There was also a hint of the Wolves of Willoughby Chase as I read as well, more for the setting and the aforementioned adult propensity toward malice.
