In Imogene and the Case of the Missing Pearls, a day after Imogene's obnoxious step-cousins pay a visit, her mother's pearls go missing. When Sherlock Holmes is called in, Imogene, harboring a secret desire to become a detective, sees her chance to learn from the great Mr. Holmes.
“Sherlock Holmes finds a plucky protégé in Imogene! The story is a true Victorian whodunit, our young heroine surrounded by a list of colorful suspects – her conniving cousin, a temperamental governess, the elderly butler, to name a few. Readers will love tracking down clues, collecting evidence alongside Imogene, and will cheer when the handcuffs are placed on the unlikely culprit. An engaging mystery for young readers!”
