"Mystery fans seeking novels of wit, an immersive English countryside setting, and rich characterizations will be rewarded with this newest entry in the award-winning series."--Library Journal (starred review) "There is such a thing as willing suspension of disbelief brought on by sheer outlandish charm, and that's what [Alan] Bradley and some delicious writing have tapped."--London Free Press "Flavia's first-person narration reveals her precocious intellect as well as her youthful vulnerability."--Shelf Awareness "Flavia is once again a fun, science-loving protagonist. . . . This series entry ends on a note that begs for the next story."--Library Reads "An eleven-year-old prodigy with an astonishing mind for chemistry and a particular interest in poisons."--The Strand Magazine (Five of the Best Historical Heroines) "Bradley's preteen heroine comes through in the end with a series of deductions so clever she wants to hug herself. So will you."--Kirkus Reviews
