Middle-school-age twin siblings Xena & Xander Holmes are having a weird year as it is - their parents' jobs have caused them to move from Florida to London - but things get a lot stranger when they solve a weird puzzle & learn they are direct descendants of world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who was actually a real person. They have inherited his casebook full of mysteries he never got to solve for various reasons, & they're determined to finish what Holmes started, with or without the help of grouchy Andrew Watson, descendant of Holmes' medical sidekick. The first case they come across involves a painting that has been missing for a hundred years - one seriously cold trail. But the Holmeses are convinced they have what it takes.
I read this book aloud to a class of second-graders & they absolutely devoured it.
