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

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

    Room by 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.… (more)

Fun and quick read about 3 children found in the woods & their "civilizing" by the 15-year-old narrator who has been hired to be their governess. ( )

Wonderful, charming: so much fun.

The Mysterious Howling is absolutely hilarious! This audio book is narrated by Katherine Kellgren who also reads the Bloody Jack audio books. In this first installment of the Incorrigible Children the reader is introduced to the young residents of Ashton Place who have literally been raised by wolves. Luckily, they have resourceful and plucky young Swanburne Academy graduate, Miss Penelope Lumley, as their new governess. Prepare to laugh out loud at the antics of Miss Lumley and her young charges. I'm sure the book is fun to read in print format as well but the vocal performance of Katherine Kellgren adds to the hilarity of the story. Looking forward to the next volume in this series. 4 stars ( )
