The Sherlock Files
review 1: Once again Barrett has proven herself a great Sherlock Holmes fan and has taken up with her two kid detectives Xena and Xander Holmes, descendants of Sherlock Holmes. His Casebook once again comes in handy with all of its notes and drawing and helps them solve the current mystery of the Beast of Blackslope. While on a weeks break and staying at a bed and breakfast, Xena and Xander run into a mysterious howling that happens at odd times and it suddenly scares the townspeople into not talking about the earlier time when the same thing apparently happened. So they must investigate on their own. Great conclusion and very Sherlockian.
review 2: I read this to my daughter who is a 5th grader and we really enjoyed it. Barrett keeps the reader interested by throwing
... more little twists and turns throughout the plot. This is Barrett's second installment in this series about a sister and brother team of jr. detectives who solve some of the unsolved mysteries left by their relative, Sherlock Holmes. We are anxiously looking forward to reading the next Sherlock File. less

This is book 2 after the 100 year old secret. Good, quick read. Appropriate for grade schoolers.
I liked this book even better than its predecesor. I hope for more in the series.
This was a reasonably good book. The plot was interesting and straight forward.
Just silly. Cute story fast read
Fun romp with lots of clues.
