What I Have to Say
This was perfect. A beautiful, intricate mystery set in an unusual and lively setting with a group of fun characters. And each section starts with lovely illustration of hats for all kinds of different occasions. What more could you ask for?
I think Middle Grade mystery is one of my favourite genres at the moment. There's so many amazing books coming out at the moment. The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow is one of the best. I just want the next book now so that I can read more from Billy, Sophie and Lil.
Also, that ending! It kept me attached to my tablet for about ten minutes while trying to get home from the station!
Really cannot wait for the next book.
