A cute twist on the traditional Sherlock Holmes story line.

11-year-old John Watson isn’t sure what to make of his new home at 221 Baker Street, in Harlem, NYC. Being a military brat, he’s accustomed to moving a lot and has always found it pretty easy to make friends. Then he meets his new neighbor, 9-year-old Shelby Holmes, and his whole life changes. A renowned neighborhood detective, Shelby is asked to solve a crime involving the disappearance of a classmate’s show dog, and somehow, John gets pulled into the mystery with her. Utilizing her smarts and his social skills, the two solve the case and along the way, become friends.

What I liked: Great characters…I just love John Watson. Shelby comes across a bit egocentric and bossy, but then, that would be how Sherlock Holmes would most likely have come across as a child as well, so I understand. Her relationship with Watson develops nicely throughout the book, and the mystery was cute, even if not too dramatic. References to the original Sherlock Holmes throughout the book were fun as well.

What I did not like: In trying to maintain the Sherlock story line, the author includes minor characters such as Michael Holmes, Shelby’s (also smart) brother, and Detective Lestrade. The only scene with the brother felt so forced it was uncomfortable, and Lestrade came across as not only incompetent, but also completely unnecessary to the story line.

Still, all-in-all, a fun read.

This book is about a young girl and her neighbor who are detectives and solve mysteries. This book can be used to teach students to look for clues, like Shelby, in their reading to decode the text. ( )

This middle grade mystery introduces nine-year-old detective Shelby Holmes and her new friend and partner John Watson. When John and his newly divorced mother move into 221 Baker Street in New York City the first thing that happens is an explosion. Their landlady Mrs. Hudson is not at all surprised and bring Shelby down to apologize.

John is used to moving around. His mother is a former Army doctor who has been transferred frequently. So John is used to being in a new place and making new friends. His mother has arranged for him to attend a school which lets him focus on being a writer. But his parents' divorce has left him with writer's block. School won't start for a couple of weeks so he's glad to meet Shelby even though she is two years younger than he is.

Shelby reluctantly introduces him to the neighborhood and he is glad to take part in Shelby's latest case - a dognapping of a show dog belonging to one of Shelby's schoolmates. Shelby has no social skills and has no friends of her own age. John is determined to help her with her case and become her friend.

This was a nice mystery and a great story about friendship. I liked the references to Sherlock Holmes. I liked Shelby's personality despite the fact that she is a bossy know-it-all. I liked that John was willing to work hard to be a friend to Shelby. ( )
