What a witty, wacky Dickensian story. The characters are well written and the situations in which they are involved can be, at times, hilarious. There are enough plot twists to keep you waiting with bated breath to find out what happens next. Sometimes when an author tries to be too inventive or clever, I find myself reading and rolling my eyes or "tsking" throughout the story. Not so with this book. The story actually is inventive and clever!
I do hope Mr. Angleberger finds it in his heart to turn those mysteries referenced in the story into actual books; i.e., "M'Lady Luggertuck Hires a Tattooed Nanny" and "M'Lady Luggertuck Meets a Handsome Frenchman."
