A perfectly fine sequel to the Incorrigibles #1 (The Mysterious Howling), though again it raises more questions than it answers, and again, my favorite character is the long-dead Agatha Swanburne. In this installment, Penelope and her charges travel to London with the Ashtons, to escape construction on the mansion where they normally live. Penelope finds a love interest, more mysterious coincidences are revealed (involving Penelope's real hair color, for one), and it seems that there's even more malicious interest in the Incorrigible children than we thought after the first book in the series. Overall a quick read, humorous and entertaining. Good if you like kids' books, or are a kid. Maybe not if you don't. Or aren't.
