No Place Like Holmes: book review

No Place Like Holmes
No Place Like Holmes by Jason Lethcoe is a mystery that is geared for the younger generation. This nearly 200 page book has ups and downs, all with a hint of mystery. There are about 200 pages divided into 29 chapters. The reading and comprehension level was perfect for my 4th grader. He would occasionally ask me what a word meant, but it didn’t affect his
comprehension. He loved this book!

The book begins with a description of the main character, Griffin, a young boy who ends up saving the day! Griffin faces many challenges along the way, and learns some important lessons. Always be kind to others, even if they aren’t kind to you. Always listen to the truth. The story focuses on the importance of serving God and reading His Word.

 In the end, Griffin solves the mystery and saves the world. The best part, he was able to lead his uncle to the Lord with the help of his pastor. That’s truly a story with a happy ending. I recommend this book for young people with at least a 4th grade reading level. The book would even appeal to teenagers.

I received this book free. All opinions expressed are my own!
