Book Review: The Case of the Missing Marquess


The Case of the Missing Marquess

Nancy Springer

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.
