When I opened up the fundraiser for Bookshop Santa Cruz’s Keep Kids Reading project, I promised to read the Jabberwocky, and I did. Then we hit $250 and, having promised the Owl and the Pussycat, I not only read the poem—with illustrations—I tossed in an Illustrated/Annotated “Owl and the Pussycat” for your printing pleasure. And now…
“Mrs Hudson’s Case.” In which we first encounter Mrs Hudson’s hidden life, later to surface to startling effect in The Murder of Mary Russell and Riviera Gold.
The tale is from Mary Russell’s War, here (where you’ll find it, free and downloadable, for a few more days.) Make yourself a cup of tea and settle in to enjoy while I read to you this tale of an unexpectedly contrary housekeeper. (And if you enjoy it, you could donate a few dollars to Bookshop’s project, here.)
