But wait, dear blog readers, In case you have forgotten last year Elizabeth Bird reviewed The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets and actually opened with: "Sweet god, how I love these books!" After re-reading her review, I should have sent Nancy my first draft:
Dear Nancy Springer, I love your Enola Holmes series so much that I cannot stand knowing there is a new one out and I’m going to have to wait for it. Please, please, please, it’s Christmas and I’ve been very good this year (well, I tried anyway) and I really want to read The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline. I celebrate New Year’s, 3 King’s Day/Ephiphany, Chinese New Year, and my birthday in January just in case you need an excuse for a holiday. If someone will send your new book, I will even celebrate "Read Enola Holmes Day" when it arrives.
Thank you for writing this (and the Rowan Hood) series. I noticed that you have written steadily since 1979 with books published every year but 1984, 1997, and 1998. Some years you have even had 4 books published in the same year. If enough of us plead, could we please have some more Enola? Thank you.
