The Lovereading4Kids comment

Wittily told in words and pictures, this is a terrific, fast-paced adventure with a great cast of characters. John Watson, a new boy at Baker Street Academy, soon joins a bunch of good friends – lead by the super-forensic Sherlock Holmes – and is swept up in their latest adventure as they are determined to locate the whereabouts of a missing diamond. All is not plain sailing as the boys’ enemy James Moriaty and his friends are equally determined to stop them! ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Holmes and Watson: Baker Street Academy by Sam Hearn

John Watson has barely settled into his new school, Baker Street Academy, when his teacher Ms De Rossi announces a trip to one of London's top museums, home to the Alpine Star, the world's most famous jewel. But the gem has been stolen - from right under their noses! The police are soon on the trail and the whole of the country is talking about the crime. When police catch the thief along with the stolen gem, it seems the case is closed. But Sherlock Holmes has other ideas. With John and Martha at his side, can he uncover the mystery behind this extraordinary gem?

Told through Watson's blog, detective notes, school assignments, media reports, and energetic comic-strip illustrations, this introduction to Arthur Conan Doyle's classic characters will have every young super-sleuth hooked!
