This book is a hoot, wait until you get to the names of some of the characters, Mrs. Whistlemeyer, a rooster, Chief Waddlemucker, the police, and of course Odboddy for a started, are just a couple, full of chuckles.
This is the first book in this series that I have read, but it won’t be the last, full of history, and with a bit of suspense, and always with a laugh.
We learn again about the Jim Crow laws, how we forget things, we also find out things about FBI Director Hoover, and we get to visit the White House and see Fala.
Wait until you find out what is in the package that our Agnes risks her life for, and boy does she do that. We travel across country on a train, and experience all the trials and fun of sleeping and eating and life on the rails. Mrs. Odboddy has more than the normal and even becomes a hobo, but will she make it to Washington, D.C. with her important package and then on to her mission?
A real joy and page-turner, and can’t wait for the next installment.
I received this book through Great Escapes Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
