Sir E. Robert Smythe and the Lost Detective is the third book in the Sir E. Robert Smythe children’s book series, written by Christina Weigand. When a camp for the homeless is set up on the outskirts of town, youngsters Anna, Bridget, Sam and Hunter befriend a new girl, Zoe, who lives in one of the tents at the camp. The town is divided, with many trying to drive the homeless folks out of town. After Bridget and Sam’s grandfather is killed by a drunk driver who is closely related to one of the homeless families, Sam goes on a vengeful rampage, taking measures of his own to see that the homeless meet with foul play. Through his own actions, however, Sam gets caught in a violent rain storm and is badly injured. Zoe and her tracker-dog-in-training, Buster, are his only hope of being rescued but, after all the evil acts he has committed out of hatred, Sam realizes he is truly on his own and that nothing but a miracle can save him.
Christina Weigand’s children’s books never fail to entertain me. With story lines of tested friendships and good versus evil, Christina delves into a world of prejudice, jealousy, vengeance, and temptation as Sir E. Robert Smythe does his best to guide each of the children on the correct path in life. Sir E. Robert’s evil counterpart, Morton Morph, keeps things interesting as he plants ill intentions within each of the children’s subconscious, leaving them to choose their own desires over what’s right. Sir E. Robert Smythe and the Lost Detective encourages children to think before they act, and to choose wisely in order to do what is right. In today’s world – a world which sometimes truly feels like it has succumbed to prejudice, jealousy, vengeance and temptation – it would indeed be such a breath of fresh air to know that tomorrow’s generation may not grow up with such short fuses and hot tempers. I thoroughly enjoyed Sir E. Robert Smythe and the Lost Detective, and wholeheartedly recommend it to all young readers aged between 5-12 years.
