Eye of the Crow: The Boy Sherlock Holmes, His First Case
Eye of the Crow, a YA story about the 13-year old Sherlock Holmes. This initial book to Shane Peacock’s series The Boy Sherlock Holmes pulls in a lot of the ‘canonical’ Holmes information and modifies some of it along the way. In it, young Holmes is constantly on the move. It was a bit repetitive for me. Also, I didn’t quite like the way Peacock uses some of those ‘canonical’ characters in a younger persona. I’d say this is definitely for someone who is well-read as the vocabulary of 1800s England isn’t clarified much for younger readers within the text.
