“How do you get reluctant boy readers interested in books? Long-time Globe and Mail columnist Roy MacGregor seems to have figured out a solution to that perennial problem with his Screech Owls series, which marries hockey with mystery and adventure. As in previous instalments, the book chronicles the adventures of a small-town Ontario hockey team as it travels around the world for tournaments. This time, Travis, Sarah, Nish, and the gang are bound for Texas. As usual, there’s more than just hockey occupying the kids, who discover a plot to destroy the titular landmark.” – Quill & Quire

“…What an ending to a fabulous series of books about the young Sherlock Holmes! Shane Peacock has made each of his ‘case files’ so powerful that fans will be sad to say goodbye to the young man destined to be the famous and dogged detective of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle works…. Shane Peacock has done a cracking job of sharing the brutalities of Victorian London and the early evidence of those traits and quirks that make Sherlock Holmes a storied detective…. Shane Peacock has done such a remarkable job of letting his readers know who Sherlock will become, a man worthy of admiration.” – Sal’s Fiction Addiction
