The article reviews the book "The Faceless Fiend: Being the Tale of a Criminal Mastermind, His Masked Minions and a Princess with a Butter Knife, Involving Explosives and a Certain Amount of Pushing and Shoving," written by Howard Whitehouse and illustrated by Bill Slavin. Includes a reference to Holmes. "In this sequel to The Strictest School in the World (Kids Can, 2006), 14-year-old Emmaline and Princess Purnah have escaped from St. Grimelda's School for Young Ladies and are living in Yorkshire in the autumn of 1894 with batty but lovable Aunt Lucy. Princess Purnah is heir to the throne of Chiligrit, a tiny, savage, mountainous place in the middle of Asia. The girls, along with Rubberbones, the indestructible errand boy, spend their days with the lunatic Professor Bellbuckle, trying to fly, since Emmaline aspires to design a flying machine. But trouble awaits. A terrifying master criminal who works for the Russian secret police and whose face below his eyes is a white mass of scar tissue wants to kidnap the princess. With the help of Aunt Lucy, the professor, the butler Lal Singh, and Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars, the villainous schemes are foiled, but not before things go wrong-a lot. The gothic overtones and menacing situations are all goofy, over-the-top, and humorously handled. The author's voice slips in with sly, wry humor. Think Lemony Snicket meets Roald Dahl. Slavin's frequent pen-and-ink sketches add just the right touch of whimsy. Princess Purnah is particularly bloodthirsty (even with just a butter knife) and her lack of mastery of the English language and her own exclamations ('Glekk!' 'Porok!') add to the fun. While many references are made to the previous novel, they are explained in context, allowing this book to stand alone."

49. Carhart, Jo-Ann, and Phyllis Levy Mandell. "Down the Rabbit Hole: An Echo Falls Mystery." School Library Journal 52, no. 1 (2006): 80-81.

The article reviews the book "Down the Rabbit Hole: An Echo Falls Mystery," by Peter Abrahams. Includes a passing reference to Doyle and Holmes.

51. Craig, Amanda. "World of wonders." New Statesman 128, no. 4438 (1999): 49.

Reviews several children's books, with a passing reference to Holmes. "...The new genius of children's fiction, Philip Pullman, seemed to spring fully formed out of nowhere with Northern Lights. Yet he has been writing for years -- his books, thanks to Penguin, were not so much published as concealed from the public. The Ruby in the Dust, The Shadow in the North and The Tiger in the Well (all reissued by Scholastic, GBP 5.99), are violently enjoyable, displaying a dark foretaste of the visionary who blossoms in Northern Lights. The heroine, Sally, is beautiful, brave, uneducated and a crack shot. Her battles against the criminal powers of Victorian London read like a cross between Sherlock Holmes, Wilkie Collins and Jack London's masterpiece, People of the Abyss...."

57. Donovan, Lori E. "Whodunit?: Detective Stories." School Library Journal 53, no. 11 (2007): 135.

The article reviews the book "Whodunit?: Detective Stories," edited by Philip Pullman. "Pullman's love of the genre is obvious in this collection of 16 stories by authors from around the world. In his introduction, Pullman briefly outlines the history of the detective story from the Bible to its rise in popularity 60 years after the first Sherlock Holmes story and the advent of movies as well as why he likes this particular genre. Readers who enjoy whodunits from such classic writers as Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie will love more contemporary selections from Damon Runyon, whose story 'Butch Minds the Baby' has a funny side, in contrast to the normally dark stories that are so prevalent now. Those who like logic puzzles with a police theme will appreciate Raymond Smullyan's selections 'From the Files of Inspector Craig,' in which readers are given a scenario and encouraged to determine who the culprit is (answers are provided at the back of the book). Each selection comes with a brief introduction setting the stage and an interesting fact about the author and/or the story."

An annotated bibliography of children's books that look at life from the perspective of an entertaining blend of characters is presented. Includes one entry with a reference to Holmes. Bunnicula Stikes Again, by James Howe, illustrated by Alan Daniel; 116 pages; Atheneum, 1999; $16. Grades 3-6. "Narrators come in all types and species. Harold the dog narrates the latest installment of the Bunnicula series. As usual, misunderstandings and wild assumptions abound as Harold and the other animals in the Monroe household jump to their own conclusions about what is happening and why. Fans will be sated with this canine's-eye view of the latest intrigue. First off, vampire bunny Bunnicula, who, you may recall, gets his nourishment from sucking the juices out of unsuspecting vegetables, seems to be growing weaker. Harold and friends suspect Chester the cat has been drinking the rabbit's carrot juice. Might Chester be trying to finish off Bunnicula once and for all? Howie, the dachshund, fuels the frenzy of fear. He has been reading countless titles in the Flesh Crawlers series, scaring himself silly. Fans of the horror genre will get a kick out of his spoofing, off-the-wall plot recitations of the giant of kids' horror series, Goosebumps. Mutt Harold is in rare form, and his narrative is packed with puns and language misunderstandings. A sidesplitting plot parallels Sherlock Holmes's deadly encounter with archvillain Moriarty. Your students will have a fine time picking out and explaining the wordplay, as well as examining how each character's specific (and limited) point of view contributes to the mayhem...."

An annotated bibliography of titles that can form text sets, sets of between five and ten books that address a particular topic or theme, is provided. The bibliography covers text sets on living creatures, pirates, physical appearance, natural disasters, and the Irish potato famine. Includes a reference to Doyle. "Michael Hague has selected 11 classic stories and poems by such noted writers as Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Washington Irving for inclusion in The Book of Pirates. 'Oh, better far to live and die/Under the brave black flag I fly,/Than play a sanctimonious part/With a pirate head and a pirate heart' (p. 15). Gilbert and Sullivan's words begin this swashbuckling collection of stories that tells of a time when pirates ruled the seas and intimidated many a nervous sailor. Hague accompanies each tale with lush, vivid paintings in dark, ominous tones that portray the book's topic splendidly. Through both text and illustration, readers are invited into a world filled with adventure, excitement, and danger. So ahoy matey, raise the Jolly Roger and come aboard..."

Gr 4-8 "In what is hopefully the start of an exciting new series, Missing Marquess features the intriguing, much younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes. Enola was a late-life baby, causing something of a scandal in society. Her rather vague mother is a 64-year-old widow who disappears on Enola's 14th birthday. It takes the girl a short time to realize that her mother left her some ciphers that indicate why she went away and how she is faring. The teen reluctantly enlists the services of her adult brothers, who quickly determine that Lady Holmes has been padding the household accounts for years. When they decide that their sister belongs at a boarding school, Enola escapes and heads for London dressed as a widow. There she is able to solve a mystery involving the disappearance of young Viscount Tcwksbury. She decides to stay in the city, adopting a number of disguises, and become a 'Perditorian,' or finder of lost things or people. Springer focuses a great deal on the restrictions placed on Victorian females by Showing how unusual Enola's bravery and common sense are, even as she often struggles with conventional reactions. She wants her brothers' affection, or indeed anyone's, but knows that a socially accepted life will strictly limit her freedom and learning. Enola's loneliness, intelligence, sense of humor, and sheer pluck make her an extremely appealing heroine who hopefully will one day find the affection for which she so desperately longs."

"The Poddington Peas ($14.95), from Poddington PLC., is a 55-minute video for preschoolers that presents entertaining stories about pea people with an emphasis on friendship and caring. This video contains some British English that may confuse children, as well as an inappropriate scene with a gun and one story that is a little too similar to The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. However, the pea characters will still charm and entertain younger viewers and act as a basis for discussion about friendship, honesty, and looking out for one another." Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "...Although somewhat lacking in originality, the stories are entertaining with an emphasis on friendship and caring. This British import features such "pea-ple" as Dump Pea, who is a little overweight; Zip Pea, a speedy little fellow; Snoop Pea, a Sherlock Holmes detective; and Hip Pea, a long-haired rocker...."

79. Hugill, P. J. "Imperialism and manliness in Edwardian boys' novels." Ecumene 6, no. 3 (1999): 318-340.

"After 1870 mass education and the rise of mass literacy began to create a huge market for juvenile literature in the industrial world in the form of weekly papers and novels. Sales in the tens of millions were realized by some authors. By the early twentieth century this market had matured, gendered, segmented, and regionalized. British boys' juvenile novels from such authors as Henty stressed the link between manliness, sports, communal and Christian responsibility and empire. The empire was the dominant site of individual social advancement. Sexuality was to be deferred until marriage. American juveniles from such authors as Stratemeyer stressed manliness, individuality, teamwork, the Anglo-Saxon compact and technology. Technology was the dominant site of individual social advancement. With the Spanish-American War American boys' juveniles started to teach that, contrary to America's past stand against imperialism, America had a moral right to become an imperial power and should learn such behaviour from Britain. From 1898 to 1912 American juveniles taught that, as Britain declined, America was shifting from the junior to the senior partner in the Anglo-Saxon compact."

Reviews the book 'Aunt Eater's Mystery Halloween,' by Doug Cushman. Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "Cushman continues his series about the clever anteater detective, this time on Halloween night. The simple chapter book has just a few sentences per page. Each episode continues the story, but can also stand on its own. Dressed as Sherlock Holmes, Aunt Eater heads to a costume party and encounters several mysterious occurrences throughout the evening. She handily solves all but one of them and readers are given a visual clue to its resolution on e last page. The cartoon illustrations are funny and capture the wacky side of Halloween nicely, with costumes ranging from ghosts to turnips."

Reports on the market performance of children's book publishers in Asia as of August 2004. Sun Ya Publishing; Kodansha; Shufunotomo Co. Inset: Selling Asia: An American Publishers Story. Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "...One of the oldest publishing houses around, Kodansha -- established in 1914 -- is certainly one of the largest as well. However, its children's book division, which started way back in 1936, contributes less than 2% to the company's bottom line. Says editor-in-chief of picture books Eisuke Otake, 'Our biggest translations include Marcus Pfister's The Rainbow Fish --which has sold over 500,000 copies since its 1995 release--and Dick Bruna's Miffy titles. With classics getting more popular, especially those out of print back in the U.S., Kodansha is reissuing titles such as Clare Turlay Newberry's Mittens and Barkis, which were published in 1936 and 1938, respectively. We have also translated titles by Margaret Wise Brown, as well as the Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes series.' At the same time, Otake says, children's paperbacks are becoming more popular as well. 'Mystery and thriller titles in pocket-sized format are the most successful.'..."
