Go to The Dancing Men and ask for a saucer of milk for your snake. Then all will be revealed.

That’s all the note says–before the ink disappears! Xena and Xander Holmes think living in London will be boring. But when they discover they’re related to Sherlock Holmes and inherit his unsolved casebook, life becomes much more exciting.
The siblings set out to solve the cases their famous ancestor couldn’t, starting with the mystery of a prized painting that vanished a hundred years ago. Can two smart twenty-first— century kids succeed where the celebrated Sherlock Holmes could not?

    " This was so fun. It is about a sister and brother that find out they are related to Sherlock Holmes. After receiving his notebook they try and solve an old mystery about a painting. I liked that it was fast paced and there was no bad language or anything violent, yet it was a mystery. Very rare, lately. Since it seems to be the start of a series, I am excited to read more. "

    " We listened to this book on CD. It was just right for our family because my husband loves Sherlock Holmes and this spin on his detective style used by his young distant relatives appealed to my sons. We all enjoyed stopping the CD player and sharing our guesses about who did it. It's an intriguing story appropriately told for young ears. "

    " I picked this one as my first club pick for my Bookbusters book club for 3-5th graders at the library. Nutshell: a family moves from the States to London and the kids (brother and sister) find out that they are descendants of Sherlock Holmes. Together, they decide to crack one of his unsolved cases. First in a series. I wouldn't say this book was so wonderful it knocked me down, but I like that it's a book that many kids haven't discovered yet, it's the first in a series (so if it hooks them, they've got a path to go down), and that it's great for boys and girls. "
