Film director Sam Mendes' production company has optioned her stories for TV. She deserves it. She is as addictive as chocolate and as English as Vaughan William's s The Lark Ascending DAILY MAIL There are blackly comic episodes and moments of great poignancy, but it's Flavia's breezy style, encyclopedic knowledge, and touching independence of spirit which propel the books and make them such a tonic to read Cornflower Books Alan Bradley, who created 12 yer old detective Flavia de Luce, is about to become a national treasure. Bradley has managed to create one of the most beguiling detectives of recent years ... Film director Sam Mendes has optioned the rights ... Good old fashioned murder and armed robbery MAIL ON SUNDAYshow more
