Charming and thoroughly enjoyable. Still reminds me strongly of Snicket's narrator voice.
They travel to London, the discovery of Lord Ashton's wolf episodes during the full moon. Possible connection between Penelope and the Incorrigibles and Agatha Swanburne due to the auburn hair and facial features. Penelope's parents are alive, but cannot contact her. Importance of Diana painting? And Penelope meets Simon, nice if slightly bland lad. There is a curse on Ashton place."To be kept waiting is unfortunate, but to be kept waiting with nothing interesting to read is a tragedy of Greek proportions."
