I chose this book because I love Jon Klassen's illustrations and when I saw that his work was included in this middle grade series I had to give it a shot. I really enjoyed this story of a young girl who has been hired on as the governess of three mysterious and wild children. The author's style of including witty and clever asides to the reader reminds me of Lemony Snicket and Catherynne Valente, and fans of those authors might enjoy this whimsical historical mystery. I will definitely be picking up the sequel to find out what happens next!
