The Case of the Perilous Palace

(4) 4-6 Wollstonecraft Detective Agency series. Illustrated by Kelly Murphy. Though their detective agency has been forbidden from pursuing any more cases, nineteenth-century tweens Ada Byron (Lovelace) and Mary Godwin (Shelley) are enlisted to help Princess Alexandrina Victoria (future Queen Victoria) locate her special book of doll sketches, which has gone missing. The fourth installment once again reimagines history with humor, wit, and good-natured implausibility. Front- and back matter clarify the imagined events and relationships.
