The Hooked on Books Club will meet on Tuesday, October 13th.
We will read the first book from The Sherlock Files series, The 100-Year-Old Secret by Tracy Barrett. This book is a 2016 Bluestem Award nominee (Illinois Reader’s Choice Awards). We will talk about how we will be participating in these awards in a few weeks.
Here’s what it’s about:
Go to The Dancing Men and ask for a saucer of milk for your snake. Then all will be revealed. Xena and Xander Holmes think living in London will be boring. But one afternoon they’re handed a cryptic note that leads them to a hidden room–and a secret society. When they discover they’re related to Sherlock Holmes and inherit his unsolved casebook, life becomes so 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 more than a hundred years ago. Can two smart twenty-first century kids succeed where Sherlock Holmes could not?
Students have the option to find the book at the public library or purchase it on their own. Parents can also send money through school and Mrs. Susina will place the order and the book will be delivered to school.
