I like reading books about war dogs, shipwrecks, and lady aviators.
This was my favorite Flavia book yet! I've found this series to be an absolute delight. To call Flavia precocious is an understatement, and one I'm sure she'd take with a heavy dose of resentment. Bradley does an excellent job of writing her character and letting the reader see the world through her 11 year old eyes, while conveying just enough of the larger world to keep this an adult series. This particular book ended with a great big cliffhanger, and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!
