It has been a long time since I’ve read such a lively, genuinely funny book. Please don’t tell the author, but I think I may love this book even more than I love his Origami Yoda series! Horton is the kitchen boy who cannot break M’lady’s extremely unfair rules but when he meets Celia, the wealthy young lady one manor over, all bets are off. In this rollicking tale, smelly stable boys best world renowned detectives, corsets are loosened and much mud and mire is spattered about. A sweeter Series of Unfortunate Events married to Matilda, this book should be placed in the hands of as many readers as possible. This would be the perfect winter holiday read.
Excuse me but I must go reread.
