Lisa I really love this series. Flavia is a heroine worthy of admiration. Smart and innocent all at the same time, daring and manipulative, but still with a conscience that just won't seem to let her go through with her poisoning schemes. I really appreciate the language of the series and how it evokes a different time and place. Who doesn't love reading about the "sharp pong of pigeon droppings"? The chemistry is just the icing on the cake. Oh, if only Flavia had been around when I was 11, Nancy Drew would have been tossed straight into the rubbish bin.
