Did you know …
Alan Bradley started writing after he retired from a career in TV engineering and production.
The author is … Canadian! and never traveled out of North America until the publication of the beloved novels. Now he and his wife plan to live for a time in each of the countries where the novels have been translated–that’s 31 and counting.
Bradley sold film rights to Sam Mendes whose production company also brought us Call the Midwife.
While there is no release date or cast for the BBC series, I found this intriguing trailer for a Flavia film in Norway, of all places!
And last of all, friend (and blogger) Denice at Denice’s Day makes a pretty good case for suggesting Flavia join the ranks of Jo March, Hermione Granger, Scout Finch, and Nancy Drew. We need to promote images of strong and confident young protagonists for girls to dream about … and grow into.
