Awooo Awoo: Book Review

The Interrupted Tale (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, #4)The Interrupted Tale by Maryrose Wood

Maryrose Wood continues to complicate the story of the Ashton’s and the wolf children. In this book, the governess is called back to her old school to give a speech. When she arrives at the school with the wolf children, she finds that things are changing for the worse and “Judge Quincy” is one making all the trouble.

The book about Awoo Awoo holds key information and everyone wants to get their hands on it!

As always, Wood strings together a number of story lines and incorporates pirate, ferns, birds and more in a silly mystery story that is entertaining for children and adults.

I am looking forward to the installment of these books.

#3 is the Best Incorrigible Book Yet

The Unseen Guest (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, #3)The Unseen Guest by Maryrose Wood

I was lukewarm on book two in the series, but I have really come to enjoy book three!

This time around the incorrigible are back at Ashton Place and the cast of characters who join them are an intriguing wacky group. Lord Ashton’s mother arrives and regales readers with the details of her husband’s grim death. It seems he drowned in a tar pit!

Mother Ashton also brings her friend and paramour, the Admiral with her. He is an over-the-top rake who is trying to marry Mother Ashton for fortune in order to start a business raising, selling and cooking ostriches.

The gypsy from book two makes a return appearance along with Simon, when they come to conduct a séance. They are trying to contact the dead Lord Ashton.

Tangles and mysteries end the book and readers will have no sense of closure. But as we have heard so often— The Hunt is On!

I am looking forward to see what wild and zany antics readers will be treated to in book 4!

Cinco’s First Book Review

Pirates vs. CowboysPirates vs. Cowboys by Aaron Reynolds

It is a fiction picture book. This book was about pirates and cowboys that were attacking each other. My favorite part of the story is when the half-cowboy, half-pirate yells out P.U. to the other characters. It was very funny! I liked this book and think girls and boys would also like it because it is funny.
