The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (or, mmmmmmmmm.... pie!)

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (Flavia de Luce, #1)The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Flavia, the 11-year-old narrator of this delicious book, speaks as if she were the offspring of Nancy Mitford, Morticia Addams, and Edward Gorey. She is an expert chemist, with poisons her specialty, and she lives in a so-British-that-you-forget-your-own-nationality town... oh, it's too delightful. Don't miss this one!

I just listened to 3 Flavia DeLuce books, including this one. They are fun, aren't they? Her revenge on her sisters is horribly funny.
