1. "The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place," by Maryrose Wood

"The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place," by Maryrose Wood (Balzer + Bray, 272 pp., $15.99, ages 9-12). This tale of a governess whose three charges were literally raised by wolves pairs the Gothic humor and arch narration of a “Lemony Snicket” story with a more benevolent worldview.
