Combining mystery, adventure and friendship with a sumptuous Edwardian setting, The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow is an absolute joy of a book, transporting the reader to a world of heady glamour offset by a murky criminal underground. It’s Nancy Drew with a PBS twist, and readers of all ages will adore the cast of exceptionally likeable characters.
Paperback, 336 pages, Age 10-14 years
Once again our heroines, Sophie and Lil are on the case, donning cunning disguises and mingling in high society, leading them straight to London’s most dangerous criminal mastermind.
Paperback, 352 pages.
Immensely enjoyable. This is a great series for young teens. And I think some adults would enjoy it like I am. It has a good story, characters, and an interesting plot. Reading the first chapter of Clockwork Sparrow briefly reminded me of the PBS Masterpiece series Mr. Selfridge. I recommend these stories for a home school book list.
