    Cover Art for The importance of being seven : a 44 Scotland Street novel

  • Lake County Public Library

    Thanks to an inter-library loan, I got an early look at Bertie's pensive wait for his seventh birthday in Alexander McCall Smith's newest book in the 44 Scotland Street series. As is typical, little is made of big events, and much is made of little events. The tenants encounter their usual obstacles, and some resolutions remain distant dreams. --Barbara, Munster

A Conspiracy of Friends by Alexander McCall Smith- June 2012 ~Anxiously awaiting this newest edition to the Corduroy Mansions series

The Dog Who Came in from the Cold by Alexander McCall Smith - May 2012 If you start reading anything by this author you will be doomed to read everything he ever writes.

Alexander McCall Smith has a hit with another serialized novel, published in daily online installments. Like his 44 Scotland Street series. Corduroy Mansions takes place in London and features a cast of quirky and amusing characters, including a dog. I like the short episodes and the author's witty view of life in Pimlico. The chapters told in the dog's point-of-view are particularly amusing. Alexander McCall Smith is one of my favorite authors. His books are well-written and they make me laugh.

I loved the author's 44 Scotland Street series last year, so picking this up was similar. Humorous. "The heartwarming and hilarious new installment in the Corduroy Mansions series presents the further adventures of Alexander McCall Smith’s newest beloved character: the Pimlico terrier Freddie de la Hay. In the elegantly crumbling mansion block in Pimlico called Corduroy Mansions, motley cast of characters."
