The Boy Sherlock Holmes

The Sherlock Holmes stories are by far my favourite detective stories of all time. James and I have watched all the videos and read most of the books.

Yesterday I gave a presentation for members of the Association of Canadian Publishers on online marketing. We were talking about how long it takes to make a blog post so I asked for a book from the audience—The Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock was the proffered title.

The Eye of the Crow turns out to be a series about a young Sherlock Holmes. The boy detective is as sharp and witty as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s senior Holmes—I’m looking forward to confirming that myself. The book is published this fall from Tundra Books.

Shane Peacock has a Flash site promoting the series.
