    Thanks to the efforts of Miss Penelope Lumley, their plucky governess, Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia are much more like children than wolf pups now. They are accustomed to wearing clothes. They hardly ever howl at the moon. And for the most part, they resist the urge to chase squirrels up trees.

    If you could sum up The Hidden Gallery in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyable, romantic, intriguing


    What other book might you compare The Hidden Gallery to and why?

    Unlike most books I read


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a full grasp of the characters. It is like a performance rather than a book reading.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is a moment when Penelope is trying to ride an early bicycle with her eyes closed. She is trying to find the zoo by sense of smell. That actually isn't even the craziest thing that happens in the book. Hint: there is also an incident with singing pirates.


    Any additional comments?

    I still love the education in this book.

    Of especially naughty children, it is sometimes said: “They must have been raised by wolves.” The Incorrigible children actually were. Discovered in the forests of Ashton Place, the Incorrigibles are no ordinary children: Alexander keeps his siblings in line with gentle nips; Cassiopeia has a bark that is (usually) worse than her bite; and Beowulf is alarmingly adept at chasing squirrels.

    "Surprisingly entertaining and educational"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book. It is a good storyline that intrigued me enough to buy the rest of the series. There are tidbits of educational information strewn through the story.


    What other book might you compare The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place to and why?

    It's a bit like Mary Poppins but Penelope is more fallible.


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her characterization is really good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Even Agatha Swanburn may not have prepared Penelope for the three Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place.
