Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Don't miss Enola Holmes: The Case of the Missing Marquess! Now a Netflix original movie starring Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, and Helena Bonham Carter!

Enola Holmes--younger sister to Sherlock Holmes--is back on another case!


Everyone knows Dr. Watson is Sherlock Holmes's right-hand man, so when he goes missing, it's a shock. Even Sherlock hasn't the slightest clue as to where he could be. Enola is intrigued but wary; she's still hiding from her older brothers, and getting involved could prove to be disastrous. But Enola can't help but investigate, especially when she learns that a bizarre bouquet--with flowers all symbolizing death--has been delivered to the Watson residence. Enola knows she must act quickly, but can she find Dr. Watson in time?

From The Publisher*

That's it.
I'm leaving. Tonight. Forever.

What child hasn't wanted to pack up his worldly belongings and run away to teach his parents a lesson? That's just what this pig plans to do! But when he, and his helpful mother, consider what those worldly belongings involve—tent, sleeping bag, clothes, pets, toys—he realizes everything he needs is right where he is. And, more importantly, so is everyone he needs.

John Segal gives this universal story a warm and funny treatment full of hilarious details and a pig you won't soon forget.
