    Whether from his appearances in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic novels or in his more modern incarnations portrayed by Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock Holmes has always been one of the iconic book characters. But have you ever wondered what this brilliant mind was like growing up? Andrew Lane's fascinating and exciting series will show you!

    Before he was the world's most famous detective, Sherlock was an ordinary army officer's son. He went to boarding school, he had good manners and received a classical education. But everything changed when his father went to India and his mother fell 'sick'. Sherlock was sent to stay with his eccentric uncle and aunt in their vast house in Hampshire and this experience led him to uncover his first murder, a kidnap, corruption and a sinister villain...

    Fully endorsed by the Conan Doyle estate, these detective stories are just as exciting as the original books.

    Originally published in the late 1800s, the lively nature of the What Katy Did trilogy has inspired so many classic children's books - with Jacqueline Wilson stating it's one of her favourite stories.

    The original story introduces Katy Carr; a girl who has grand plans to be beautiful, graceful and ladylike - but all of that can wait. She's now happy to have tangled hair and to wear a torn dress. She's got a wild imagination and is always up to mischief. However, when she's involved a terrible accident, it takes a lot of courage - and patience - to keep her dreams alive.

    What Katy Did at School finds Kay and her sister Clover leaving for boarding school, but they're weighed down by worries that their father won't cope without them; and What Katy Did Next has Katy exploring the beautiful sights of Europe.

    Presented in a slipcase, these are beloved stories your children and you will both enjoy in equal measure.
