Oh my stars, do I have a treat for you today! The lovely people at Bloomsbury have given me the first chapter in Elizabeth Eulberg’s upcoming middle grade debut, The Great Shelby Holmes, to share with you.
I’ve just started this one and it is so much fun! A delightful twist on Sherlock Holmes. As a long time fan of Elizabeth Eulberg’s books, I expected nothing less. But you don’t have to take my word for it! Read on for more about the book and a link to chapter one!
About the Book:
Shelby Holmes is not your average sixth grader. She’s nine years old, barely four feet tall, and the best detective her Harlem neighborhood has ever seen—always using logic and a bit of pluck (which yes, some might call “bossiness”) to solve the toughest crimes.
When eleven-year-old John Watson moves downstairs, Shelby finds something that’s eluded her up till now: a friend. The easy-going John isn’t sure of what to make of Shelby, but he soon finds himself her most-trusted (read: only) partner in a dog-napping case that’ll take both their talents to crack.
Sounds like fun, right? Start reading now:

About the Author:
Elizabeth Eulberg is not a detective (or so she claims). She is, however, the internationally bestselling author of The Lonely Hearts Club, Prom & Prejudice, Take a Bow, Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality, Better Off Friends, and We Can Work it Out. Elizabeth lives outside Manhattan, where she spends her free time stalking English bulldogs in her neighborhood and filling her brain attic with random pop-culture facts. The Great Shelby Holmes is her first middle-grade novel. Visit her atwww.elizabetheulberg.com or on Twitter: @ElizEulberg.
Thanks to Bloomsbury I also have TWO finished copies of The Great Shelby Holmes to giveaway. US only. Must be 13 or older to enter. Finished copies will be sent when the book releases.
