The adventures of the Supper Club continue! Eliza finds herself alone and friendless in her new school. When she suspects a famous video game influencer has gone missing, Eliza immediately calls Sherlock Sam, Watson and the Supper Club to investigate. However, the facts point to Eliza making it all up. Will Sherlock and the Supper Club discover what’s really going on before Eliza gets into even more trouble? Or will her number of likes plunge below a socially acceptable status?
"The perfect book for grounded readers who have been kept away from their phones, games and TV to keep those digital withdrawal symptoms away. I'm going to keep my copy safe because years from now, this would be a perfect anthropological study on how we got through the pandemic times and kept our friendships alive through virtual worlds and social media. Fair warning...arm yourself with some snacks. You'll be hungry when you're done."
—Charlene Shepherdson, poet
“The humour and camaraderie of the children, the robots and the lovable parents are reassuring, and makes you wish you could be part of the group in their next adventure.”
—Naomi Kojima, Japanese author and illustrator of The Alphabet Picture Book and Singing Shijimi Clams
“What’s not to love about a savvy kid with pluck, prepared to step outside humdrum routines to solve mysteries? Young readers everywhere dream of pushing limits in pursuit of adventure, and Sam is all the more appealing for his habit of running rings around grown-up buffoons. In Sherlock Sam, A.J. Low has conceived a series sure to have long-term appeal.”
—Ken Spillman, author of the Jake series
“From the first missing heirloom in Katong to this current cloaked classmate in MacRitchie, Sherlock Sam continues to captivate its readers. Definitely a middle-grade series that I would unreservedly recommend to teachers, parents, and fellow bibliogeeks. Science!”
—Myra Garces-Bacsal, PhD, National Institute of Education, Singapore
