Young Sherlock Holmes Books

It doesn't have anything to do with the movie from the 80's, by the way.

Apparently the estate of Arthur Conan Doyle has approved the writing of a 3-book YA series about Sherlock Holmes' youth.
The books will begin in the 1860s with the fourteen-year-old Sherlock sent to spend the summer with eccentric relatives as his soldier father heads for India. Sherlock is drawn into a sinister international plot with a brilliantly imagined villain at its heart.
While I got this bit off a British website, it did say world rights, so I have hopes we'll see them over here about the same time. They're tentatively scheduled for next spring.
