    We really liked the way Watson got his name. That made us all laugh. It took our teacher a while to understand. We really love your books because they’re so funny. We’re loving how your books have Singlish in them. Your drawings on the cover are great.

    Thanks and we can’t wait to read some more!

    Can you come and visit us in 1Gi?

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hey Kristie! Thank you for the kind words! The covers (and all the interior illustrations as well) are drawn by a very talented artist named drewscape. We would love to visit your school, but we need to be invited by your teachers first, so let them know to invite us by emailing us!

      Thanks again!

  9. Alex says:

    Can you tell me when Sherlock Sam and the cloaked classmate un macritchie is coming out.

  10. Hey SHERLOCK! U came to my school on 14 JULY 2014 (which is today). I really love your books. They are GREAT! I once lost interest in reading books as i find no creative ideas in most of the books i read but no longer after i saw SHERLOCK SAM the book. I thought it was going to be the last book i will ever read but instead no. U have a partner right? Hope u guys will publish SHERLOCK SAM once a week! Let the book SHERLOCK SAM be famous all around the world!! Once again, I LOVE YOUR BOOKS!

    • sherlocksam says:

      Thank you very much! Adan really enjoyed talking to all of you today and we’re so glad that you love our books! It makes us very happy :) We promise to keep on writing as fast as we can! (But maybe once a week is a little too fast!). Keep on reading Sherlock Sam and other books as well okay? :)

  13. junkai says:

    Hi I am a student from lakeside pri sch. I saw the book talk that day and I am very interested in the book. May I suggest that you start another series about sherlock sam. Maybe the other series could be about time travelling ’cause sherlock sam is such a genius. It is just an idea so no harm done if you dont do it. Overall I realky like your sherlock sam series. Do more please!!

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi Junkai,

      Thank you for writing to us! Well…it’s a possibility especially if Sherlock can figure out a way to upgrade Watson such that Watson can open time portals…

      We hope you continue to enjoy our books!

  14. Brodie McClelland says:

    (SherlockSam and the missing heirloom) The book was really creative with the pictures. Aj low made this book really interesting, and I like how the heirloom goes missing then they find it at the end.

    • sherlocksam says:

      Thank you very much, Brodie! We’re so glad you like the book and we hope you’ll like the rest of the adventures Sherlock Sam, Watson, and the Supper Club go on too!

  15. Aaron says:

    Hi A.J. Low.

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi Aaron,

    Hi. In Book 6, I noticed that Eliza got a call from “Jake’s Mom”. When I rearranged the letters, they formed “James Mok!” Is it a coincidence?

  29. sam says:

    Hi, may I know if sherlock sam book 8 the fiendish trilogy 3 is now out and available at all bookstores?

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi there,

      We’ve seen it at Books Kinokuniya, but it should be available at many other bookstores like Popular and Times very soon! Please do check with the bookstore staff if you are unable to find it! Thank you for reading Sherlock Sam!

  30. Max Tan says:

    Hi ! I have ask the Popular worker. But they say that there is no Sherlock Sam 8 .

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi Max,

      Sorry about that. The book was just published so it could be that Popular hasn’t received the books yet. Books Kinokuniya already has it, or you can try again at Popular in a week or so! Do let us know if you’re still not able to find it! Thank you for reading our books!

  31. PuteriElle says:

    Hi! Im The BIGGEST Fan Of The Book! When You Came To Xingnan Primary School,I So Excited To Buy The Book I Have Three Books Now(1,6,7)I Hope To Look Forward To Book 8!

      Hi Puteri,

      Thank you for writing to us! We’re so happy to hear from you :) Book 8 should be available in bookstores now and in libraries too! Hope you enjoy reading it :)

  32. Christine megan says:

    i love your books they are AWESOME !

  33. Max Tan says:

    Hi! May I suggest that in the next series all the members of the supper club have a watch phone which was made by sherlock and his father to allow them to communicate with each other, and have some special thing about the watch that no one knew.

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hello Max! Thank you for the suggestion! We haven’t given the Supper Club any gadgets (besides Watson, who’s clearly more than just a simple gadget) because we felt it might be too easy for them to solve mysteries. We didn’t even want to give them smartphones! But your suggestion is a good one, and we’ll think about it very hard, especially now that some things have changed for Sherlock Sam and the Supper Club.

  34. Hi! Can You Make A TV Show For The Sherlock Sam Based From All The Book Please? (Im Begging My Parents To Buy Me Book 8! ^-^ )

  35. Hi! Its Me Again :) My Mom Asked That When Will You Go To Popular Jurong Point? Thanks ^-^

  36. saibalaji says:

    how you get the ideas this types of books
    but i love your sherlocksam characters.

  37. PuteriElle says:

    HELO AGAIN! While Im Reading My Book 8 I Want To Ask Something
    What Is The Age Of Eliza? (I Love My Little Pony Too :) ) LOL ^-^

  38. TheElleeeeeees says:

    Why Do You Inspired Eliza To Be A Fan Of MLP?

    • sherlocksam says:

      We usually make our characters fans of the same things we like, so Eliza’s a fan of My LIttle Pony because we are fans of My Little Pony :D

  39. Eunice says:

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi Eunice,

      Thank you for writing to us. We are actually working on the first draft of book 9 right now and it should be published by Oct or Nov 2015. We hope you liked the Fiendish Mastermind Trilogy!

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi there! Thank you so much for writing to us! We’re so happy that you like the Sherlock Sam books and that they cheer you up :) That means a lot to us to know. We’ll definitely think about writing a new series set in Singapore, but for now, we’re still working on more adventures for Sherlock Sam, Watson, and the Supper Club! Keep an eye out for their upcoming adventure in Tokyo some time in October this year! :D

Thank you for letting us know you like our books — it means a lot to us :) Sherlock Sam and the Obento Bonanza in Tokyo will be out mid-October and we hope you’ll like it too!

      Take care!

  44. Tony says:

    Hi Sherlock Sam! May I request if u could have a special edition of one of the book that is coloured . So when we are reading the book together with the drawings , we can visualise and imagine them better in our heads!

    • sherlocksam says:

      That’s a pretty good idea! We’d have to check with our publisher as they take care of all the printing and stuff to see if it’s something they’d be interested in too :) Thanks for the idea!
