Want to meet the cast of the Sherlock Sam books? Then you’re in the right place!

Samuel Tan Cher Lock a.k.a. Sherlock Sam

A ten-year-old boy with eyes bigger than his tummy, Sherlock’s heroes are Sherlock Holmes, Batman and his dad. Extremely smart and observant, Sherlock often takes it upon himself to solve any and all mysteries—big or small. He loves comics and superheroes!

Watson

Built by Sherlock to be his trusty, cheery sidekick, Watson is, instead, a grumpy “old man” who is reluctantly drawn into Sherlock’s adventures; or as Watson perceives them, his misadventures. Watson is environmentally friendly.

Wendy

Sherlock’s older sister. A year older than him, Wendy is a very talented artist but she is terrible at Chinese. Sherlock would like to be taller than her one day soon. She doesn’t like wearing dresses or skirts.

Jimmy

Sherlock’s classmate, Jimmy is the only boy in a Peranakan family with four sisters. Seemingly much younger than his actual age, everything is exciting and magical to Jimmy. He has terrible handwriting.

Nazhar

Nazhar is the big brother of the group. Usually shy and quiet, Nazhar will stand up for his friends when they are threatened. Sherlock admires him for his knowledge of history, which Nazhar picked up from his dad. Nazhar believes in the supernatural much to the dismay of Sherlock.

Eliza

One of the prettiest and most popular girls in school, Eliza often bullies kids she sees as weird or geeky, for example, Sherlock Sam and his friends. Eliza spends a lot of time in front of the bathroom mirror, making sure her hair is neat.

Dad

An engineer, Sherlock’s dad is a scientific genius, but is rather forgetful and bumbling in real life. He has never stopped reading superhero comics—a love he’s passed on to his son.

head-mom
Mom

A homemaker, Sherlock’s mom is half-Peranakan and is constantly experimenting in the kitchen. Sherlock often wonders why she tempts him with food, then does not allow him to eat his fill.

Auntie Kim Lian

A Peranakan matriarch, Auntie Kim Lian is renowned for her cooking skills. Fiercely protective of her grandchildren and her family recipes, she loves cooking for Sherlock Sam because he loves her food!

head-siva
Officer Siva

A Deputy Superintendent in the Singapore Police Force, Officer Siva is an experienced policeman who is extremely impressed by the intelligence he sees in Sherlock Sam. He loves kaya toast and coffee from Chin Mee Chin, a bakery in Katong.

Luis

Luis is 10-years-old and in the Fourth Grade at Enterprise International School. An expert in Four Square, Luis loves sports and the beach. Originally from California, Luis has grown to love Singaporean culture and food, especially Milo.

head-fidel
Uncle Fidel

Uncle Fidel worked as a copywriter in the US before moving to Singapore. He started writing children’s books because he wanted to encourage his son, Luis, to read more. Fidel loves wearing hats and drinking kopi-c-peng (Singaporean iced coffee with evaporated milk).

Auntie Maria Olga

Auntie Maria Olga works long hours as a kidney surgeon and is happy that Fidel is able to write from home and spend time with Luis. When she’s free, she’ll make delicious Mexican food for her family. She collects tiny bottles from around the world.

    Do you know where I can get a costume of Nazir in Singapore?

    • sherlocksam says:

      There aren’t any ready-made costumes of the characters (yet!), but Nazhar mostly wears his school uniform. If you really want to dress up like Nazhar, just find a school uniform that looks like his and wear that 🙂

    Hi

  14. Ryan Chan says:

    Hi Sherlock Sam!
    Why is Watson so grumpy?

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hello Ryan!

      Watson is grumpy because when Sherlock and his dad built him, they built him out of a bunch of old computer, radio, and even torchlight parts they found lying around the house. So even though Watson is less than two years old, his insides are all 50-60 years old! If your insides were that old, you’d probably be pretty grumpy too 🙂

  16. Matthew Ethan Hazra says:

  17. Matthew Ethan Hazra says:

We couldn’t attend the @epigrambooks sale conference because we had to work so we made a video about our upcoming book set in Seoul! (Hint: we most talked about food and Running Man 😬) We’re super excited for you guys to read it AND the extra special short story (Hint: #SherlockSam gets lots of presents and he doesn’t know why!). #ajlow #seoul #korea #singlit #kpop #kiddetectives #mysteriousmasterminds #robots #middlegrade #kidlit #runningman
Not-so-lazy Sunday mornings (hey, we’re still five minutes away from noon!) working on edits for Sherlock Sam and the Mysterious Mastermind in Seoul. Our two robots get a little weird at the end of the previous book—what’s going on!? (And how many misplaced commas will we find!?) Find out this August (About the robots. Hopefully we’ll catch all the errant commas before then.)! #ajlow #sherlocksam #seoul #korea #robots #kidlit #kiddetectives #robots #welovereading #welovebooks #middlegraderocks #detectivestories #editing
We spent the morning creating detectives, suspects, and plotting crimes with these P5 students from Alexandra Primary School! They had so many ideas and we hope they write more stories! You guys were really fun 🤩 Also, many thanks to @book_a_writer for making the arrangements and Sonya for helping out 😁 #ajlow #sherlocksam #creating #writing #imagination #kiddetectives #robots #singlit #workshops #alexandraprimaryschool
