We were very lucky to be asked to preview and give our opinions on a new book written by author David Ruffle. The book called Sherlock Holmes and the Missing Snowman is a lovely story about a little girl Henrietta who loses her snowman and asks Sherlock Holmes to help her find out where he has gone.
Most of the children enjoyed the story and thought the illustrations were very interesting too.
Crawford said, “It was fantastic!"
Leah at 'The Well-Read Sherlockian' let her children loose on our 'missing friend'. The result is here:
'Having been blessed with three little people myself, I thought I’d give The Missing Snowman a field test. My kids are 10, 9, and 7–the first two a little older than Ruffle’s target audience, but since they still enjoy being read to, I figured they’d do in a pinch, so we snuggled up on the couch before bedtime. Here are their reactions:':
Daughter, 10: “Sherlock Holmes is like a mysterious character. He likes kids and talks to them so they can understand things.”
Son, 9: “It was great!”
Son, 7: “It was awesome!”
Star Rating: 5 stars out of 5 “This is a wonderful book that gets it right.”
