Review

Enola Holmes solves another curious case, all while eluding her brothers, Sherlock and Mycroft. This case involves the disappearance of Sherlock’s famous biographer, Dr. Watson.

Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes stories seem to be successfully getting closer to the canon with each story. In this case, Enola uses a variety of disguises and personalities to not reveal her true identity while tracking down the missing Dr. Watson. Enola must equally use her youth and vitality to escape being found out.

The readers also get to see a seldom-seen, deeper look into Dr. Watson’s wife, Mary.

The story is a middle-grade (MG) read, but it does have a higher vocabulary since it’s using a great many terms from 1889. That being said, it’s a mystery story that should keep young readers involved to the very end.
