The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery

by Nancy Springer

216 pages
ISBN: 0-399-24304-6

Ages 9-12

Enola Holmes is the much younger sister of famous detective Sherlock and his brother Mycroft. When their mother disappears, the brothers reluctantly return to the family estate to help arrange for Enola’s care. They’re in for a surprise, however. Their little sister is a stubborn, determined, clever, young woman with an eye for drawing and meticulous observation skills. She has no desire to learn how to be a refined lady, and every desire to solve the mystery of their mother’s disappearance. Following the trail laid out in the secret codes her mother left behind, Enola stumbles upon a second mystery involving the disappearance of a boy from a wealthy family in a nearby town. Enola soon realizes that he, like she, yearns for a life beyond the bounds permitted by narrow Victorian class and gender norms in a suspenseful, funny, and satisfying mystery that introduce this lively new character and series.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
