In this novel, she introduced Hercule Poirot, one of most her famous fictional character (Bautista, 2012).

My Papa Joe, with his Afro of white hair, and my Grandma Lee Lee, who limped like a peg-legged pirate because one leg was shorter than the other, were sitting in lounge chairs talking about how much I had grown.

And there I was, all alone in the land of giants with only my cowgirl Barbie to protect me.
