The Boy Sherlock Holmes: His 1st Case

Join The Circle of Knowledge @ your library! April 13 - 19, 2008 is National Library Week, and what better way to begin the celebration than with a new book? What we have here is a new brand of Sherlock Holmes classic mysteries. Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock is the introduction to The Boy Sherlock Holmes series.
Sherlock Holmes is just thirteen years old and a misfit. His mother is a highborn daughter of an aristocratic English family and his father, a poor Jew. Their marriage makes them social outcasts in London in the 1860's, and their son, Sherlock, bears the burden. He has no friends and is bullied at school. He belongs nowhere and has only his wits to help him make his way through life.
Though still a young boy, Sherlock's power of observation are already apparent. Sherlock finds himself at the center of a grisly murder mystery, drawn in until he too is a suspect. A fatal mistake and its shocking consequences change everything in Sherlock's world and put him on the path to becoming the world's greatest detective.
This book is a background story to the most famous, fictional detective of all time.
The game is afoot so don't miss this most excellent mystery!
