Tween Tuesday: Young Sherlock Holmes (future read)


I subscribe to the MacMillian Kids blog, which is always fun to read. Last week they had an author, Andrew Lane, post about his book, Death Cloud. It's a retelling of Sherlock Holmes as a 14 year old. You all know how much I love the Young Bond books, so imagine my excitement when I saw this. It won't be published in the US until this winter, but it is already available in the UK, and I was able to find a copy on Amazon. I ordered it and it is on it's way to me right now!

I am always excited to read "origin" books and glad that authors take a chance to bring these older, beloved characters to life for a whole new generation. Check out the website along with a book trailer for this first Young Sherlock Holmes novel. I will be looking forward to reading and reviewing this one!

  3. Sounds interesting. Actually what really sounds interesting is Young Bond. You've given me some new books to find!
