Since the beginning of the year, we have been adding books to our school library. Here are some of our recent additions.
Sherlock, Lupin, and Me takes Arthur Doyle’s character of Sherlock Holmes and writes a series of stories that could have happened in Sherlock’s childhood. The first book of this series is The Dark Lady in which Sherlock Holmes meets Irene Adler during a family vacation. They meet another character named Lupin. Eventually the trio comes across a dead body in the river and together must figure out how it got there.
We have also added a children’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist. The story follows an orphan boy as he transfers from various homes and different jobs and apprenticeships. When he finds himself in London, some diverse people find him and befriend him.
The Case for Christmas is written from the perspective of a journalist looking at the story of Christmas and seeing if there is proof to back it up. Lee Strobel consults archaeological and theological experts and outlines the true reasons for Christmas.
