Elizabeth Eulberg: The Great Shelby Holmes and the Coldest Case

We'll just say it: Elizabeth Eulberg is a delight. We are so happy to have her back at The Book Stall.  Her YA fiction is warm, funny, voice-driven, and engaging, and her Great Shelby Holmes books, a mystery series for readers ages 8 and up, are beloved by all our young mystery fans. You won't want to miss this first event for grade school kids this fall season.  We'll serve cake!  We'll have fun, and learn more about Shelby and her best friend John Watson.

Being friends with a super sleuth isn't easy, especially when she's nine years old, four feet tall, and full of attitude. But for eleven-year-old John Watson, being friends with Shelby Holmes is just the adventure he's looking for.

After Watson's online journal chronicling his and Shelby's case-closing abilities attracts the attention of a newspaper reporter, the pair becomes a small "media sensation" in their Harlem neighborhood. So it's no surprise (at least, to Shelby!) when the article lands them a new client--a figure skating coach whose star athlete, Jordan Nelson, is receiving strange, threatening messages, written entirely in code.

There's no one better to crack the cipher than dynamic duo Shelby and Watson! But to gather information, Shelby decides that they'll have to go undercover . . . as an award-winning pair skating team. Can they use the laws of physics and their acting skills to maintain their covers and figure out who's sending Jordan such strange messages before it's too late?

Elizabeth Eulberg is not a detective (or so she claims). She is, however, the award-winning author of middle-grade novels The Great Shelby Holmes and The Great Shelby Holmes Meets Her Match, and internationally bestselling author of The Lonely Hearts ClubProm & PrejudiceTake a BowRevenge of the Girl with the Great PersonalityBetter Off Friends, We Can Work it Out, and Just Another Girl. Elizabeth lives outside Manhattan, where she spends her free time stalking English bulldogs in her neighborhood and filling her brain attic with random pop-culture facts.
