Alan Bradley – A Red Herring Without Mustard.



A Red Herring Without Mustard – Alan Bradley (2011, Thorndike Press/Delacorte Press, U.S.A.)

Flavia de Luce, the oldest eleven year old in fiction, is back and in as fine form as ever, sleuthing away to determine who murdered the local scallywag and bashed in the head of a wandering gypsy.  Although I had this one figured out really early on, it was a delight to follow Flavia all the way through – her shenanigans totally crack me up.  Of course, this series is getting a bit formulaic the deeper I get into them, but they’re so outrageously entertaining I don’t really care.
