I got this book for my nine year old sister for Christmas and she LOVED it. My mom didn't think a book would be appreciated because my sister doesn't enjoy reading as much as I did when I was her age, but I of course did what my mother told me not to do. I'm glad I did. My sister stayed up way past her bed time for several nights because she apparently couldn't put it down. I read it myself before I gave it to her. At 23 I found it to be entertaining as well, full of mystery without being scary. There wasn't any bad language or inappropriate themes for the age group. Not only has this book made my sister want to read more books but she also wants to learn more about Sherlock Holmes, English literature, and English history. I just ordered the second book for her.

This book was good but not my favorite. There was not a good climax, and was not suspenseful.

It's good. But a litttle to much like the boxcar children mysterys. Otherwise, it's a very good book. It's one of those mysterys where the reader can figure it out themselves. In some other mystery books, you have to be one of the characters to solve the mystery. Worth the mony for young sleuths.

My new favorite series! I've just read book #1 of The Sherlock Files, and I must say it is awesome. Tracy Barrett has made a way for the modern generation to connect to our favorite detective.  The modern-day descendants of Sherlock, a brother and sister sleuthing duo, Xander and Xena Holmes, are Americans going to England with their parents. Once there, they come into possession of Sherlock's casebook of unsolved mysteries. As any curious child would, these siblings embark on the adventure of a lifetime... following in their Great-Great-Great-Grandfather's footsteps and using modern tools and hindsight of history to locate clues and make their own sharp deductions. Even Watson's Great-Great-Great-Grandson is part of the hunt! The book shows how children truly can be intelligent if they'll just use their brain. I love how the author incorporated "the game" of deciphering who or what a stranger is, just by taking in the clues. She truly capture the mental spirit of Holmes.  Recommended for young readers who enjoy a good mystery. Or for adults of any age who would like a fresh glimpse of Sherlock Holmes.
