If you have any questions regarding this program, please feel free to contact Kim Aumick at email@example.com.
Summary of The Great Shelby Holmes
Shelby Holmes is not your average sixth grader. She’s nine years
old, barely four feet tall, and the best detective her Harlem neighborhood has
ever seen–always using logic and a bit of pluck (which yes, some might call
“bossiness”) to solve the toughest crimes.
When eleven-year-old John Watson moves downstairs, Shelby finds something
that’s eluded her up till now: a friend. The easy-going John isn’t sure of what
to make of Shelby, but he soon finds himself her most-trusted (read: only)
partner in a dog-napping case that’ll take both of their talents to crack.
Sherlock Holmes gets a fun, sweet twist with two irresistible young heroes in
this middle grade debut from internationally bestselling YA author Elizabeth
Watch fo these Fun Friday events during the program.
