The author of the Young Sherlock Holmes novels will speak at the first children’s event held at Barts Pathology Museum.

Andrew Lane will discuss his new novel, Lost Worlds, at the event on Saturday.

Lost Worlds follows ‘cryptozoologist extraordinaire’ Calum Challenger, a disabled 15-year-old boy on a mission to track down supposedly mythological creatures and capture their DNA.

While Calum and his friends - a computer hacker, a free runner, an ex-marine and a pathological liar - want to save these beings and find a cure for Calum’s paralysis, an aggressive pharmaceutical company aims to wipe them out.

Children aged nine and upwards are welcome at the event, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

Lane is a British author and journalist, known for his Dr Who spin-off books, audio dramas and non-fiction books based upon popular franchises such as James Bond.

His first novel on the early years of Sherlock Holmes, Young Sherlock Holmes Death Cloud, was developed in conjunction with the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and published in 2010.

There are now five books in the Young Sherlock Holmes series with the sixth book, Young Sherlock Holmes Knife Edge, publishing in September.

Barts Pathology Museum is Queen Mary, University of London’s medical museum at West Smithfield.

Admission to Andrew Lane presents Lost Worlds, on Saturday from 1pm to 3pm, is £4 for adults and free for children, and tickets must be booked in advance.
