Customer reviews

This an enjoyable conversion of one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyles' best known Sherlock Holmes stories. At only sixty-four A5 pages it still seems to feature all the main characters and plot points. Although marketed to children I found it an engaging read. The art is great and has a Manga quality to it, presumably to help appeal to the young audience. The colours are really good and there are lots of candlelit interiors and bleak, overcast moorlands. At the back there is a section about Conan Doyle, a short biography of the adapter and artist, details on Sherlock Holmes, a glossary, questions for discussion, writing ideas and a safe internet site to learn more. Really good ideas for young minds. In short this would make the perfect children's gift, the first tentative step to exploring Conan Doyle's work or a handy refresher or aide memoir of the story. Thumbs Up!show more
