The new resident in 221A Baker Street is about to give Sherlock Holmes a run for his magnifying glass!
When Griffin is sent to stay with his detective uncle at 221A Baker Street for the summer, he is certain that his uncle must be the great Sherlock Holmes! But Griffin is disappointed to discover that Holmes lives at 221B Baker Street and his uncle lives unit 221A. His uncle is a detective, just not a very good one. But when Griffin meets a woman with a case that Holmes has turned away for being too ridiculous, he and his uncle team up to help her. Along the way, Griffin shows his uncle just what it means to have true faith in God, even when the case challenges that. The woman claims that her husband was eaten by the Loch Ness Monster, but monsters aren’t real—or are they?
Loved. This. Book.
I am so thankful to the author for writing this book and making it into a series. I definitely would not have been satisfied if the story had ended and I wouldn’t have known what happens next. Griffin, the twelve-year-old hero, is well-rounded, likeable and incredibly smart. He is a wonderful role-model for young boys to look up to. His life has numerous lemons and he uses every opportunity to make lemonade. He has a great attitude that is infectious, and can I just say that I am so jealous of his first detective adventure?!?! I wish it was me finding the Loch Ness Monster, saving the queen and getting to play with more mechanical steampunk inventions than I can even remember.
This is the kind of book that I would love to write for kids, all of the James Bond excitement and heroism, but nothing above a “G” rating. My highest regards to the author and I can’t wait for the next one in the series!
