Great series - highly recommend!
What a fun read!
I can't say enough about this series; it's probably the most borrowed from our house. The characters are full and beautifully described and Flavia is the clever child any reader can relate to.
Bradley's Flavia series is charming, funny and whole-heartedly spell-binding.
