The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Hidden Gallery

By Maryrose Wood, read by Katherine Kellgren

Ages: 9-12

Katherine Kellgren gives another stellar performance narrating The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Hidden Gallery, the second book of this popular series about a plucky British governess and her three wolf-child charges. Kellgren's accents are spot-on, with deft vocalizations of everything from aristocratic to Cockney. With London as the backdrop and offering sage advice like "No Panicking. No Complaining. No Quitting," this is a Mary Poppins-esque tale elegantly and wittily crafted for the millennial generation.

Bottom line: Satirically spot-on adventure yarn that one reviewer called "charming as heck."
