Maryrose Wood, acclaimed author of The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series, will visit the Scarsdale Public Library on Tuesday, May 28th at 7 pm for the Grade 5-6 Bookclub.
The first two books in Wood's continuing series about the "incorrigible" children and their governess, The Mysterious Howling (Book I) and The Hidden Gallery (Book II), are very popular with library patrons and have been reviewed by the School Library Journal, which described Book I as, "Jane Eyre meets Lemony Snicket in this smart, surprising satire. Humorous antics and a climactic cliff-hanger ending will keep children turning pages and clamoring for the next volume, while more sophisticated readers will take away much more." Book II has been described as, "Another series of uproarious escapades."
"We are so excited to welcome Maryrose Wood to our children's book club this month!" said Scarsdale Public Library Executive Director Elizabeth Bermel. "We have seen how popular The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series is, especially with our 5th and 6th-graders, so we know that all of the kids will be looking forward to meeting the author and asking her questions about what to expect in the storyline."
