Book Review - Sherlock Holmes and the Disappearing Diamond

Sherlock Holmes and the Disappearing Diamond

About the Book
John Watson has barely settled into his new school, Baker Street Academy, when his teacher announces a trip to one of London's top museums, home to the Alpine Star, the world's most famous jewel.

But the gem has been stolen! The police are soon on the trail and the whole of the country is talking about the crime.

When police catch the thief along with the stolen gem, it seems the case is closed. But Sherlock Holmes has other ideas. With John and Martha at his side, can he uncover the mystery behind this extraordinary gem?

Told through Watson's blog, detective notes, school assignments, media reports, and energetic comic-strip illustrations, this introduction to Arthur Conan Doyle's classic characters will have every young super-sleuth hooked!

My Take on the Book
My youngest daughter and I read this together and we both agreed that this was a book that was a ton of fun. You get a bit of a twist on the characters that you love and you get a mystery and some adventure as Sherlock and his friends get placed on the case. Sherlock Holmes is a character that seems to know it all, but he really needs his friends to balance out his idiosyncrasies. I am impressed with the writing of this and you have to love the relationship that is developed and the mystery that is set within the context of the book. By the end of this you will be saying that you want another book in the series, or at least that was the way that my daughter and I felt!
