The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Unmapped Sea (Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place #5)
Author: Maryrose Wood
The fifth book in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place—the acclaimed and hilarious Victorian mystery series by Maryrose Wood, perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket and Trenton Lee Stewart—has a brand-new look.
“A baby—blast!” Lord Fredrick Ashton may not feel ready to be a father, but with a little Ashton on the way, he’s sure about one thing: The wolfish curse on his family must end soon, before the child is born. Otherwise, he warns Miss Penelope Lumley, “A barking baby Ashton is just what we shall have.”
Penelope willingly takes on the challenge, for she knows that the fate of her own pupils is strangely bound to the fate of the moon-cursed Ashtons. The missing puzzle piece lies within the fading memory of an ancient mariner named Pudge, a resident of the old sailors’ home in Brighton. When Lady Constance’s doctor prescribes a seaside holiday, Penelope jumps at the chance to take the three Incorrigible children to Brighton. There, with the help of her playwright friend, Simon, and a modest bit of stagecraft, Penelope hopes to persuade old Pudge to reveal what he knows.
But the Ashtons are not the only ones at the beach in January. The passionately temperamental Babushkinov family is also taking the winter waters. The Incorrigible children may have been raised by wolves, but the Babushkinov children are the wildest creatures they’ve ever seen. If anyone ever needed a firm and capable English governess to take charge, it’s the horrible Babushkawoos, as the Incorrigibles call them—but is it more than mere coincidence that these untamed children have turned up in Brighton just as Penelope and the Incorrigibles arrive?
