The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley

I picked this book up on a whim. It does have a whimsical feel to it, doesn’t it? The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. I haven’t read a mystery in a while, but 156 pages into it, I would say that this book is worth your while.  (At the very least, it’ll give you a chance to get out your periodic table. ) The year is 1950. Our precocious narrator and unofficial detective is 11 year old Flavia, the third daughter of an eccentric stamp collector and an aspiring chemist with a passion for poisons. The dead man is well…dead, and Flavia wants to know why.
