Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

Meet Flavia de Luce. She's smart and observant and charming, a brilliant sleuth and chemist. There's little that fazes her, not even finding a dead body in her cucumber patch. Oh, yes, and she's eleven years old.
She fights with her siblings, like any eleven year old does, except that when she wants revenge, her tactics are a bit unusual--like using her knowledge of chemistry to taint her sister's lipstick with poison ivy. And when she's not fighting with her sisters or riding her trusty bicycle, Gladys, around the English village where she lives, she's usually making friends with gypsies, outwitting the local chief of police, or discovering a murderer.

To date, there are three books in this wonderful new series by Alan Bradley: Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag, and most recently, A Red Herring Without Mustard. Find them at your local library!
