Sherlock Holmes Gets a Makeover

After last week's spotlight on a character from a popular mystery series, it seems fitting that today's subject is a name that defines the entire genre:  Sherlock Holmes.  Readers who, just a few years ago, would find Cam Jansen entertaining can now apply their sleuth skills to a new series for more advanced readers.  The famous detective now has books that describe his emergence as a teen detective.

Check out this video for the series.  It really showcases what I love about book trailers (or book commercials).  Done well, they possess a cinematic feel that rival some of the enticing film and TV promos that students encounter.

Many young mystery fans will be so intrigued by Young Sherlock Holmes trailer that they will want to get their hands on this book and start uncovering clues.
