Our heroine is absolutely adorable in this book. Waddling around London with her parasol. By the end of the book I was very surprised to see how everything turned out. It was just crazy. But, well really, that just seems to be the way things are! I am loving this author and her crazy spin on things. I also love all the odd steam-punk inventions that she comes up with. Porcupines and a giant octopus?! Gotta love it.
