The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the first in an intriguing new series featuring Slightly Jones, a little girl with red hair, lots of freckles and a flyaway temper who is determined to become the next Sherlock Holmes. When a fossil goes missing from the Natural History Museum as it is about to be presented to Queen Victoria, the wrong man is arrested and Slightly knows that. She unlike everyone else is determined to catch the real culprit and bring him to justice. She needs the help of Granny Tonic but it’s Slightly who saves the day.
The Case of the London Dragonfish by Joan Lennon
Slightly Jones has red hair, too many freckles, and a flyaway temper, but she’s not going to let that stop her becoming the next Sherlock Holmes… It’s 1872 and a precious find is about to be presented to Queen Victoria at the new Natural History Museum. But then the exhibit goes missing, and the finger of suspicion points at an innocent man. Slightly Jones won’t let the real culprit get away with it – and with the help of Granny Toxic she sets out to save the day.
