Book Review: No Place Like Holmes

No Place Like Holmes is a great book for young children. Truthfully even as an adult, I enjoyed reading it and look forward to the next book. The main character, Griffin, is a wonderful example of a christian. I hope his uncle gets saved in the next book.  No Place Like Holmes is a mystery with a redemptive message of forgiveness. It will help your child look beyond peoples bad attitudes and have a redemptive heart.

Book Description
The new resident in 221A Baker Street is about to give Sherlock Holmes a run for his magnifying glass!

When Griffin is sent to stay with his detective uncle at 221A Baker Street for the summer, he is certain that his uncle must be the great Sherlock Holmes! But Griffin is disappointed to discover that Holmes lives at 221B Baker Street and his uncle lives unit 221A. His uncle is a detective, just not a very good one. But when Griffin meets a woman with a case that Holmes has turned away for being too ridiculous, he and his uncle team up to help her. Along the way, Griffin shows his uncle just what it means to have true faith in God, even when the case challenges that. The woman claims that her husband was eaten by the Loch Ness Monster, but monsters aren’t real—or are they?
