Editorial Reviews

Review

“With its sharply drawn characters, including the hiss-worthy older de Luce sisters, and an agreeable puzzle playing out against the cozy backdrop of a British village at Christmas, this is a most welcome holiday gift for Flavia fans.”
Publishers Weekly

“That serial charmer Flavia, wreathed in Tennyson and Shakespeare.” 
Kirkus Reviews
 
“We find in Flavia an incorrigible and wholly lovable detective; from her chemical experiments in her sanctum sanctorum to her outrage at the idiocy of the adult world, she is unequaled.”
Library Journal (starred review)
 

Selected praise for Alan Bradley’s Flavia de Luce books:
 
“Think of Flavia as a new Sherlock in the making.”
—Booklist
, on A Red Herring Without Mustard
 
“Bradley is a writer of great charm and insight, and he infuses even minor characters with incredible personality . . . Flavia de Luce, both eleven and ageless, is a marvel and a delight.”
Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, on The Weed That Strings the Hangman’s Bag
 
”A wickedly clever story, a dead-true and original voice, and an English country house in the summer: Alexander McCall Smith meets Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Please, please, Mr. Bradley, tell me we’ll be seeing Flavia again soon?”
—Laurie R. King, bestselling author of Pirate King, on The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
