Praise
"Flavia de Luce...[is] more independent and demonstrably naughtier than her literary sister-sleuths....[She's i]mpressive as a sleuth and enchanting as a mad scientist...."
"It's a rare pleasure to follow Flavia as she investigates her limited but boundless-feeling world. And it's nice to know she'll be back."
"Brilliant, irresistible and incorrigible, Flavia has a long future ahead of her. Bradley's mystery debut is a standout...."
"THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE makes perfect summer reading--it's gore-free, very funny in places, nicely written, not too sweet (despite the title) and narrated by a real charmer."
From the Publisher
Annotation Eleven-year-old chemistry buff Flavia de Luce is the unlikely heroine of Alan Bradley's THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE, the first in his playful mystery series. When Flavia's father, Colonel de Luce, gets implicated in a murder case, and arrested, she must piece together the curious clues--a dead bird left on the doorstep, a valuable postage stamp that's been missing for decades, a corpse she finds in the cucumber patch, and a mysterious suicide--in order to prove his innocence. Flavia is an engaging sleuth to tag along with, and Bradley evokes mid-century England with panache.
