The 100-Year-Old-Secret,
The Sherlock Files # 1

by Tracy Barrett
Kids' Wings Award for Outstanding Literature
Junior Library Guild Selection

"Your great-great-great grandfather's name was---."
"Sherlock Holmes!" Xander turned a shing face toward Xena. "We're related to Sherlock Holmes! How awesome is that!" from The 100-Year-Old Secret

When Xena and Xander move with their mom and dad to London, a strange message written in disappearing ink leads them into a dangerous trap and a 100-year old mystery. In their detective work, they discover that they are the great-great-great grandchildren of the famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. When they turn up his casebook of unsolved crimes, they decide to take up where he left off.

The 100-Year-Old-Secret is the first of a series in The Sherlock Files mysteries. Lots of fun and problem solving await the reader. Written at a 4th grade level with a high interest story line, the story is accessible to a wide range of readers.
