My childhood was a world tour of literary locations. Disneyland for me? NO SIR. But at age eight, I did walk for hours through London to see every place mentioned in the Sherlock Holmes canon. Mom preferred Cornwall, to follow in the footsteps of Daphne du Maurier. This book is the perfect gift for any mom who thinks a reading of Anne of Green Gables might best be paired with a visit to Prince Edward’s Island!— Keltie
