Great news. I've read the first couple books and enjoyed them - especially the one where she wants to trap Santa. My mother just bought the first book for my 14-year-old and 12-year-old nieces.

I love these books and hope the series does them justice.

Im trying to read this series slowly so I dont run out....I love them and rank them "up there" with the Harry Potter series....I just wish they were as long as the H.P. books! Eagerly awaiting Flavia on film! As Im 65 and in very poor health, please font take too long getting this series filmed and in circulation!!!

Geez I'm curious when / if this is gonna happen too! It's 2022 now... LOVED the books!

I am still following this. I read the Sweetness a few years ago, but only recently discovered it was a series and I adore it. I hope this was only stalled and that we will get to enjoy this series via TV series or Movie(s).

My husband and I are thrilled! We listened to almost all of the books on CD while travelling, and wished for a TV series. The key will be getting the right actress to play Flavia. Best wishes!

I have been checking for updates or news on the series for a few years. I guess Covid has pushed it back. Worse thing is no more Flavia mischief to read about. Can't wait to see her come to life.
