Sherlock Holmes Society of London
Sherlock Cat and the Missing Mousie by Heather Edwards, illustrated by Amanda Downs is, of course, aimed at young readers. Spot and Fluffy live with five-year-old Mary and her parents. Having listened to Mary’s father reading stories of the great detective, Spot reckons that he’s cut out to be a feline Sherlock, with Fluffy as his faithful Watson.
His first experiments cause some disruption, but he settles in to the rôle, and decides to investigate the unusual happenings next door. The ensuing adventures are exciting and funny, enhanced by the attractive illustrations. The lines of text are unnecessarily widely spaced, but that apart it’s a charming book.
