Reviewing Baker Street Academy: Sherlock Holmes and The Disappearing Diamond

I loved this book!

I thought it was such a clever idea to place Sherlock Holmes in the present and have him at Baker Street Academy.

The book is set from Watson’s point of view and we are introduced to Baker Street Academy and Sherlock through him.

I thoroughly enjoyed the interactive nature of the illustrations, they provided a feeling of being on the case yourself and actually belonging to this gang of super sleuths. That is something i can honestly say i really like about the book!

I enjoyed the story, it was fun and very engaging, so much so i managed to solve the crime before the end of the book!! Kudos to me. 🙂 

More than easy enough to read in one sitting, this book is a delight to read and you will not want to put it down until the mystery has been solved. I will be adding more Baker Street Academy books to my collection as soon as they come out!

Thank you to Anna’s Adventures in Bookland and Scholastic for my copy of this book.

Megan is a prolific reader, having been reading since she was just 1 years old, Megan is never without a book in her hand or her heart. At just 5 years old Megan challenged herself to read 365 books in a year but finished in just 10 months! She has always been keen to grow her library at home and is a frequent visitor to our local library. Megan may have read 365 books in 10 months when she was a pipsqueak 5 year old but she was reading every day before that and every day since! We estimate that she is well over the 2000 book mark and nothing is slowing her down yet! She is a keen supporter of literacy and authors alike. Now she is older she hopes to give her reading challenge a boost by reading at least twice as many books in a year. Megan generally reads several times a day and as her parents we are read out a lot of passages from books!! :-) Megan is a keen reviewer and has decided to share her journey through books with other book minded people. She is also a member of a chatterbooks group where she is given a book (or 3) to read and review for the next gathering. She is confident in her approach to what she has read, what she likes and dislikes, and she has no problem expressing those feelings with other booklovers.
