The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: Book 2: The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood

The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood This is the second book of a new series. You can read my review of the first book here and the third book here. The books are a fun read, not much of a plot in each book, but the bigger mystery of the children’s past (and Penelope’s past as well) keep the reader interested in the series. Each book reveals a couple small clues about the mysteries.

My Mom-Meter gives this particular book an overall safety rating of 1 (Safe) for ages 8 and up.

A good synopsis of the book is found here. The author, Maryrose Wood, has a website that has a game and great teacher discussion guides for the series here.

Here are the potential moral issues parents might wish to talk with their kids about:

  • Miss Lumley meets a young man who she begins to like a great deal. The romance is definitely understated, and I feel it is appropriate for 3rd graders.
  • The children are told their fortune by a gypsy woman, and it appears to be accurate.
  • Miss Lumley steals a bike in a moment of desperation to find the children. Potential Discussion Point: Is it ever right to steal?
  • It is hinted that Lord Ashton might have a condition that cause him to turn into a wolf once a month.

From a kid’s perspective: “Kids 8 and up who like the Lemony Snicket books will like these books. They are really easy to read. I give it 4 stars out of 5 stars.”
