Reviews

Praise for As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust "Flavia de Luce [is] perhaps contemporary crime fiction's most original character--to say she is Pippi Longstocking with a Ph.D. in chemistry (speciality: poisons) barely begins to describe her."--Maclean's "Another treat for readers of all ages . . . [As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust] maintains the high standards [Alan] Bradley set from the start."--Booklist "Exceptional . . . [The] intriguing setup only gets better, and Bradley makes Miss Bodycote's a suitably Gothic setting for Flavia's sleuthing. Through it all, her morbid narrative voice continues to charm."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Even after all these years, Flavia de Luce is still the world's greatest adolescent British chemist/busybody/sleuth."--The Seattle Times "Plot twists come faster than Canadian snowfall. . . . Bradley's sense of observation is as keen as gung-ho scientist Flavia's. . . . The results so far are seven sparkling Flavia de Luce mysteries."--Library Journal "A rattling good 'girls' own adventure' yarn with an extensive cast of characters and suspects . . . When all is revealed, the links, misunderstandings and secrecy have a satisfying click."--Winnipeg Free Press "A delightful installment in the series!"--LibraryReads Acclaim for Alan Bradley's beloved Flavia de Luce novels, winners of the Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger Award, Barry Award, Agatha Award, Macavity Award, Dilys Winn Award, and Arthur Ellis Award "If ever there were a sleuth who's bold, brilliant, and, yes, adorable, it's Flavia de Luce."--USA Today "Part Harriet the Spy, part Violet Baudelaire from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Flavia is a pert and macabre pragmatist."--The New York Times Book Review "This idiosyncratic young heroine continues to charm."--The Wall Street Journal "Delightful . . . a combination of Eloise and Sherlock Holmes."--The Boston Globe From the Hardcover edition.
