The Lovereading4Kids comment
The world’s favourite detective was already showing signs of his future exceptional talent for investigation as a child. Ignoring the obvious when he comes across his brother holding a knife and with a dead body in front of him, the Young Sherlock sets out on a thrilling adventure to save him. Nothing is quite as simple as it seems in this fast-paced adventure driven by the Young Sherlock’s indefatigable quest for the truth and packed-full of sinister, ill-willed villains.
