Last night I reluctantly turned the last few pages of the book SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE. Flavia de Luce is a delightful sleuth…and she is just eleven years old.
“Impressive as a sleuth and enchanting as a mad scientist, Flavia is most endearing as a little girl who has learned how to amuse herself in a big lonely house.” The New York Times Book Review.
Alan Bradley is a Canadian writer. He is seventy years old, and this is his first novel . The second in this trilogy is THE WEED THAT STRINGS THE HANGMAN’S BAG. Read and enjoy!
