The Great Shelby Holmes Meets Her Match (Hardcover)
The rare sequel that's as delightful as the first! In book two, the great Shelby Holmes and her semi-reluctant sidekick/best friend, John Watson, attend school, start a new case, and acquire an arch-nemesis! This is a great adventure with some scary (but not too scary) bits, some exciting bits, and some truly great friendship bits. Still the best Sherlock Holmes adaptation out there! -- Lily (RBB Staff)— From The Great Shelby Holmes Meets Her Match
The Great Shelby Holmes may have finally met her match in this humorous sequel to Elizabeth Eulberg's fresh twist on Sherlock Holmes.
Being friends with a super sleuth isn't easy, especially when she's nine years old and four feet tall, and full of attitude. But for eleven-year-old aspiring writer John Watson, being friends with Shelby Holmes is just the adventure he's looking for.
In the few weeks since moving to Harlem with his mom, Shelby has been training John in the art of observation-a skill that comes in handy on the first day of school. John's new teacher, Mr. Crosby, is acting suspiciously, and Shelby knows this is a mystery worth investigating. But as Shelby and John dig deeper, they discover that there may be someone unexpected involved--someone who may have Shelby beat.
