The Mystery Of The Yellow Hands

Monday, April 19, 2010
What do you do when you have gotten so good at your job as a detective that you're popular and can't investigate without people knowing what you're doing? You hire some street kids to sneak around for you and report what they observe! 

#1 - The Mystery Of The Yellow Hands by Jake & Luke Thoene
The Mystery of the Yellow Hands (Baker Street Detectives)
Genre: Mystery, Adventure
Target Audience: Boys 11-15
Subject: Showing God's love to others
Summary: Danny, Peachy and Duff are orphans in London who get recruited by Sherlock Holmes to help solve the mystery of the children being kidnapped all around London. Before they can solve the mystery the boys find opportunities to share God's love with others, and rely on God to be with them, watching over them.
Notes: This is the first in the Baker Street Mysteries series, stories about young boys who can travel more freely around London than Sherlock Holmes and are thus employed by him to be his assistants. 
This book is primarily adventure focused - moving from one action packed event to the next. However, there are a couple of times where the spiritual theme is focused on.
Recommendation Scale: 2.5
Reviewer: J:-)mi
