The Baker Street Peculiars is a supernatural twist on the beloved world of Sherlock Holmes.
When a giant lion statue in Trafalgar Square comes to life and wreaks havoc on 1930s London, it seems like the perfect case for the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. With an overwhelmed caseload, however, Holmes recruits the help of three precocious young detectives-in-training (and one cunning golden retriever) to solve the mystery. Molly, Rajani, Humphrey, and Wellington (the dog) will have to work together and use all their wits if they are to uncover the truth behind the living statues and save London. But on the legendary Baker Street, nothing is as it seems and their biggest mystery might be the real identity of the famous detective who brought them together.
Written by Eisner Award winner Roger Langridge (Thor: The Mighty Avenger, Abigail and the Snowman) and illustrated by Andy Hirsch (Adventure Time, Regular Show), The Baker Street Peculiars is a heartfelt and supernatural twist on the beloved world of Sherlock Holmes.
This was quite funny from the first page. Truly enjoyed this, always love when authors turn Sherlock on it’s ear with such a diverse gang and fighting the gender norm of that period (The Enola Holmes Mysteries by Nancy Springer comes to mind). The running away from the copper was really funny & enjoyed the truth behind Sherlock. Great for the younger generation to dip into Sherlock.
