This is another terrific book in this series. Flavia de Luce is an endearing character – mentally and emotionally precocious, yet still with many little-girl flaws. She pretty much has no fear, doesn’t care if she gets herself (or her bike, or the house) dirty; to her, life is all one big experiment. It is one of the things that is so charming about her – she can outwit and out-think many of the adults in her life, yet her strong curiosity, the need to know things and to figure them out (along with a completely unselfconscious pride in doing so) leads her into places and situations that only a child could venture – and extricate themselves from – relatively unscathed. Loved this book and I recommend it for a fun, recreational read.
