The Case of the Missing Marquess
This delightful little tale is the first in a series of children’s mystery books. It follows Enola Holmes, 14 year old sister to the much older Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes. Quirky and equally intelligent, Enola leaves home on a search to find her missing mother. Careful to elude being found by her older brothers, she ends up right in the middle of another case of missing persons… a 12 year old marquess from a nearby town.
Even though Enola does find herself in a bit of a dangerous scrape at times, the overall mood of the book is fun and lighthearted. It is a clever take on a Sherlock Holmes spin-off, and who doesn’t enjoy a good Sherlock Holmes mystery? This promises to be a fun kids series… I plan to introduce it to my girls. 5 of 5 stars on Goodreads.
