ARC Review: Enola Holmes: The Graphic Novels Volume 1 by Serena Blasco

Publication Date: May 24, 2022

Synopsis:

A graphic novel adaptation of the hit books that inspired the Netflix film! Sherlock Holmes’ brilliant, strong-willed younger sister takes center stage in this delightfully drawn graphic novel based on Nancy Springer’s bestselling mystery series.

14-year-old Enola Holmes wakes on her birthday to discover that her mother has disappeared from the family’s country manor, leaving only a collection of flowers and a coded message book. With Sherlock and Mycroft determined to ship her off to a boarding school, Enola escapes, displaying a cleverness that even impresses the elder Holmes. But nothing prepares her for what lies ahead…
 
Book One in the series includes three thrilling mysteries: The Case of the Missing Marquess, The Case of the Left-Handed Lady, and The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets. At the back of the book, readers can explore a portfolio of pages from Enola’s secret notebook!

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I really enjoyed this! I’d previously read the first Enola Holmes book and really enjoyed it, and it was fun to revisit and then follow the story of the next two.

The watercolor style was playful and expressive, giving Enola Holmes plenty of personality. It fit really well with her exuberant and determined character. I liked how the color scheme changed to fit the mood of the story, and the expressiveness of each character’s design.

The storyline was easy to follow and hit all the main points of the plot. I enjoyed seeing the excerpts from Enola’s notebook at the end of each volume.

I will look forward to future volumes and following Enola’s adventures.
