Another Great Kids Read

The Sherlock Files- Book 1
The 100-Year-Old Secret by Tracy Barrett
5 stars
JF 157 Pages
Not illustrated

This new mystery series is off to a great start!
Xena and Xander have just moved to London-- and discovered that they are direct descendants of Sherlock Holmes! The SPFD (Society for the Preservation of Famous Detectives) welcomes them by giving them Sherlock's book of unsolved cases. No naturally the kids decide to try their hand at solving them.
This was a really fun read, great for young readers. I don't know that I'll read it to Boo yet.... no pictures and I don't think she's quite ready to follow this kind of story (it would help to know who Sherlock Holmes is, for example). But for a elementary school reader it would be perfect.
