Edgar Award-winning author Nancy Springer captivates young listeners with mysteries that feature Sherlock Holmes' little sister Enola. Abandoned by her mother and fearing her brothers will exile her to a finishing school, 14-year-old Enola lives a lonely London existence. But when someone kidnaps her elderly landlady - the closest thing she has to family these days - the feisty heroine will do whatever it takes to find her.

    " Fourteen-year-old Enola (alone spelled backwards) manages to rescue her kidnapped landlady, meet Florence Nightengale, wonder where her missing Mother is, and stay one step ahead of and out of sight from her famous brother, Sherlock. Mystery lovers should enjoy this. "

    " Like the previous Enola Holmes mysteries, the Cryptic Crinoline blends historical events, the plight of the poor and working classes, women's suffrage, and a mystery all together flawlessly. This case introduces Florence Nightingale to the reader and to Enola through a Enola's elderly and deaf housekeeper, Mrs. Tupper. As the series progresses, Springer is doing a wonderful job of defining the relationship between her main character and her more famous siblings, Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes. The series is also building toward the ultimate mystery: Where is Enola's mother and why has she been avoiding contact with her daughter? A great read for mystery lovers of both sexes between the ages of 9-12, the series does not have to be read in strict order, but that is best. Younger readers who have completed the series might enjoy Theodosia Throckmorton; older readers might like to try Philip Reeve's Larklight or Diana Wynne Jones. "

    " 3 and a half stars. I love reading the Enola Holmes books; they are just a fun and entertaining diversion--slightly fantastic mysteries flavored with history and heartily focused on women's rights. Enola is more appealing as a form of superhero prototype (clever hide-outs and disguises, tragically alone, valiant rescues, saving lives...) than she is a mystery sleuth. "

    " I really enjoyed this fifth installment. It is a good read and I love Enola's ability to outsmart her brothers. I wish there were more than just one more book. "
