Xander and Xena, Americans spending a year in England, are thrilled to vacation in Blackslope. Their peaceful escape, however, is soon disturbed by a 100 year old mystery-the horrible beast of Blackslope. Apparently this beast has been causing fear within the hearts and minds of the residents for a 100 years. Xander and Xena's ancestor, Sherlock Holmes, was unable to solve the case. Can the siblings restore peace to Blackslope by finding the monster and ending its reign?
My fourth grader read book #1 in this series and is continuing with the series. He really enjoyed the suspense and adventure, and would frequently share exciting parts with me.
