As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley (Doubleday Canada)
Alan Bradley was 69 when he entered the U.K.’s Debut Dagger fiction competition and immediately won a world of fans with the introduction of intrepid 11-year-old chemist/detective Flavia de Luce. These wonderful books set in small town England in the 1950s are great for mystery lovers of all ages. This is the sixth of 10 planned books.
Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper (Penguin Canada)
Eighty-two-year-old Etta has never seen the ocean. So early one morning she takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 3,232 kilometers from Saskatchewan to Halifax. There’s lots of buzz about the debut novel from Canadian-born, U.K.-based Emma Hooper. In addition to writing, Emma plays viola, violin and vocals as Waitress for the Bees and has her own iPhone app, SingSmash.
