EJ Johnson | 21 comments I was introduced to this a couple years ago through our family book club. It was a fun read although I don't comprehend Mrs. Pollifax's reason for becoming a spy. It's a bit dark as she contemplates suicide. Most of the series is fun to read too but in a couple of the books, Mrs. Pollifax is too unhappy and made me wonder if Dorothy Gilman was struggling with depression at the time she wrote them.
