Description

The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of Sherlock Holmes' most famous and intriguing cases.

When Sir Charles Baskerville is found mysteriously dead in the grounds of Baskerville Hall, everyone remembers the ancient legend of the monstrous creature that haunts the moor. The great detective Sherlock Holmes knows that there must be a more rational explanation, but the difficulty is to find it before the hellhound finds him!

With an introduction by Judith Kerr, creator of The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
