Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Would Pippi Longstocking qualify?


message 2: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Edwards I have to confess(?) that I've never read Pippi Longstocking so I don't know, but I trust your judgement. Run it up the flagpole and see who salutes, as the saying goes. That's one of the things that makes Listopia interesting.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Will do -- thanks. (Since we seem to be including Mark Haddon's "Curious Incident," I feel a little more secure that this is not merely about intellectual or artistic genius, though. Or is it ...?)


message 4: by Ian (new)

Ian "Carry On, Mr. Bowditch."
He's pretty smart . . . ?
Haven't read it in five years so I can't quite pinpoint it.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'd forgotten that one - thanks for reminding me.

He's a mathematical whiz. Pretty intellectual.

Yes, he was a mathematical genius type, Nathaniel Bowditch.


message 8: by Selina (new)

Selina What about The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau?


message 9: by Moon (new)

Feel free to add it -- the tab for adding books is right next to "all votes" up top.
