Sherlock Holmes

As you know, Nancy Springer created the character of Enola Holmes to be the younger sister of fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Do you know Sherlock Holmes? Sherlock Holmes was created by Scottish author Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930) and first appeared in 1887. He starred in four novels and fifty-six short stories.

The Children's Department has a couple of adaptations of Holmes stories that you may want to check out:

We also have an audio CD called Sherlock Holmes for Children. It's a storyteller's version of Sherlock Holmes and contains four stories. It can be found in our audiobook collection under jCD Weiss.

If you are interested in learning more about the man behind Sherlock Holmes, check out The Man Who Hated Sherlock Holmes; A Life of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle by Richard Powers located in our biography collection under j920 Doyle.
