Overview

The Case That Time Forgot (The Sherlock Files Series #3) by Tracy Barrett

Xander's classmate Karim tells him about a famous amulet carved in the shape of Thoth, the Egyptian god of time. It was thought to be so powerful that it could turn back time one day every hundred years. And that day is in a week!

The amulet disappeared from a London museum years ago. Xena and Xander's celebrated ancestor Sherlock Holmes tried to find it, but had no luck. The twins are on the case—and so are mysterious foes who are trying to thwart and perhaps even harm them! Can Xander and Xena track down what Sherlock Holmes could not?

The Case That Time Forgot is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Hardcover (edit) Review Thrilling book for kids! Two things I love: Sherlock Holmes and Egyptian history. Once combined, it is my favorite thing to read about. Xena and Xander Holmes (descendants of the famous Victorian London detective) are trying to solve, with modern conveniences, cases that Sherlock couldn't finish. This particular case involves an Egyptian water clock, a long-lost amulet, and making time stand still. Or rather, that's the legend that's been passed down through the generations. Once you add a thief into the mix... It's an epic adventure! The main characters are fighting against time itself to locate the missing pieces of the puzzle. As an extra note: If you like this book, you'd probably enjoy watching the kid/teen television series called House of Anubis.
