Praise For Sherlock Academy: The Holmes Brigade (Sherlock Academy Series)

"For everyone who's ever wanted to be Sherlock Holmes, this is your chance."
- Adam Glendon Sidwell, bestselling author of Evertaster

"Is it too late for me to enroll at the Sherlock Academy of Fine Sleuths? I adore this series, and The Holmes Brigade feels as if Trenton Lee Stewart and Eoin Colfer have teamed up to write the perfect homage to my favorite fictional detective. F.C. Shaw is marvelous."
- Charles Finch, bestselling author of theCharles Lenox Mysteries​

“I loved everything about these books! The characters, the plot, the mystery, the action, the school, the writing style . . . everything is wonderful!

Rollie is an excellent main character. He’s smart and observant, and he wants to be just like Sherlock Holmes. I really identified with his thought process and his emotions and excitement in the middle of a mystery.

I loved the easy friendship between Rollie and Cecily. They are great friends, and it really shows in their banter and camaraderie. I loved how they nickname each other ‘Holmes’ and ‘Watson.’

The writing style is excellent, drawing the reader into the story. The plot leaves little foreshadowing clues all over the place for the reader to wonder over until the mystery is revealed. I love the puzzles and codes, and the plot kept me interested right to the very end.”  —Kailey Bradley, Books for MKs
