Gr. 4-7. This collection of 25 mysteries involving robbery, murder, and even insurance fraud will keep fans of Encyclopedia Brown busy for hours. The plots are all similar and adhere to the same structural formula: Sherman Holmes, who claims to be descended from the great Sherlock, shows up at scenes of crimes thought to be unsolvable. Sergeant Wilson wisecracks, but he puts up with the eccentric Holmes in order to reap the benefit of his wisdom. Evidence is described and witnesses questioned; then Holmes miraculously solves the crime. Young sleuths can try their hands (and minds) at solving the mysteries, then turn to the back for the answers. All the clues necessary to solve the crimes are included in the brief stories, but the answers are still tantalizingly difficult to deduce. Black-and-white spot illustrations reminiscent of Edward Gorey's darkly funny work provide an additional tribute to the Victorian setting of the original Sherlock Holmes stories. Diane Foote
