A Study in Green: Sherlock and Alfie, Book 1
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: A Study in Green: Sherlock and Alfie, Book 1
Please note: This book is not actually a children’s book. Yes, it’s about talking rats and yes it does have farts in it, but it’s written more or less at the same level as the original Sherlock Holmes books and like the Holmes books deals with some adultish (e.g kidnapping, a casual reference to possible adultery) issues. All of which is to say that this book probably isn’t a good read for your 6-year-old but would be fine for your 12-year-old (or an adult who never really grew into adulthood).AH-OOOOH-WA! AH-OOOOH-WA! The warning klaxons scream as the roof of the brownstone peels back. In the parlour, three stories below us, white smoke pours from the engines of the giant rocket, as Sherlock and I struggle helplessly in our bonds. The ropes cut cruelly into my flesh. Our nemesis, Moriarty, lets out a barking laugh as he prepares to launch the rocket that will destroy life-as-we-know-it in New York…When, Alfie, a young rat from London, sets out to visit New York City, it was going to be the trip of a lifetime. Just what he needed to add a little excitement to his boring life. Only nothing goes as planned and he ends up homeless, penniless and living on the streets. Then he meets Sherlock Holmes. At least, he meets a rat who thinks he’s Sherlock Holmes. When Holmes mistakes Alfie for Dr. Watson it’s the start of a wonderful friendship. Together, they embark on a grand adventure to find a missing rat and save the city from Professor Moriarty’s nefarious plan!A rollicking tale full of surprises and adventure in the spirit of Sherlock Holmes! *****NOTE 2***** This book contains farts. If you are offended by farts or books about farts or books, as this book, that contain farts (even if this book isn’t really about farts) you might want to try a different book.
