This delightful tale will appeal to readers from 10 years up. It has elements of silliness--an uncle infected with a curse/disease that makes him younger and nimble, but obsessed with eating insects. Its historical background (Edwardian England) includes good history, but also lots of fantasy. Obviously setting up sequel(s), the story features a delightful heroine, suitably spunky and resourceful. A fun romp
