"Bisho ku....," bisiknya

I adore this series! The Original Characters (especially the core BSI group!) are wonderful and I'd happily read books and books on each character alone. The treatment of Billy, Wiggins, and the Canon gang is brilliant excepting for poor, mistreated Watson. I really hope to see the good doctor given fairer assessment in later books, for I am, above all things, a Dr. John Watson fangirl.

Overall, however, this is a wonderful series. I'm well above the intended age bracket, but I adore curling up

Like the last book, the thing that upsetted me the most was the treatment of Watson, a bit less visible here.
However, I enjoyed reading this one better than the last. Ozzie pleased me immensely in this one, showing off in front of Holmes. And once again, Pilar was a badass.

Tracy Mackin ja Michael Citrinin "Noidutun miehen tapaus" (Gummerus, 2010) jatkaa Baker Streetin Iskuryhmä -sarjaa ollen samalla sen viimeinen suomeksi käännetty osa. Kirjassa joukko lontoolaisia orpopoikia auttaa mestarisalapoliisia ratkaisemaan rikosta, jonka takana ovat spiritistisiä istuntoja järjestävät huijarit (luulenpa, ettei Arthur Conan Doyle olisi innostunut kamalasti tämmöisestä juonikuviosta).

Pidin melko paljon sarjan ensimmäisestä osasta ja olen vinkannutkin sitä vaihtelevalla mene

Normally I don't select books that are written for the "juvenile" or YA shelves. But often the books are excellent. When I was young, I liked a series by Lloyd Alexander. Later I thought the "Lucky Starr" books written by Issac Asimov (as "Paul French") were ok. As an adult I read the first six by "Lemony Snickett" which I though were very good and of course J. K. Rowling's series gets accolades from every quarter. And only a few days ago I read a book on Chinese tales intended for a young audie ...more

La segunda entrada en la serie de los Irregulares de Baker Street, esta es otra sólida historia de misterio protagonizada por el grupo de los Irregulares. Holmes es aquí un personaje aún más secundario que en la primera entrega, lo que no representa en realidad un problema, ya que eso le da más espacio a los Irregulares para desarrollar sus personalidades. Ozzie, Wiggins, y la española Pilar siguen siendo los principales.
Totalmente recomendable, aunque es una lástima que el artista gráfico no es

Book #2 in the Sherlock Holmes/Baker Street Irregulars series does not disappoint. This time it's murder and the spiritual world.

"Casebook #2 in this exciting series gives Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars a most unusual case to crack!

As Ozzie, Wiggins, and the gang start investigating, seemingly real ghosts suddenly appear and Elsa is followed by shady characters. Holmes must decide if he an

Not bad. Good enough.

Another exciting case from the files the Baker street Irregulars. Though this case wasn't quite as exciting as the first book. First of all the story felt shorter and the solution felt a little forced. Though there was more Watson in this one which is good and I did enjoy the adventures that the Kids engaged in. Though all told this felt more like a "you meddling kids!" cartoon than a Sherlock Mystery. The Kids even had a dog.
Crystal
I enjoy this series because they are short enough to read in one setting. I also think it makes Victorian England accessible to children. I don't love how every other paragraph jumps 3rd person perspective. I think it has the effect of distancing the reader from the characters, which I'm sure is opposite the intent.
Nancy Newton
Though this is classified young adult and young Sherlock Holmes is featured it's still a must for any Sherlock Holmes fan. Clever plotting and naming of characters contribute to its charm.

This is a great series for children, especially if they've graduated from Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys books and like a more sophisticated mystery.
Nisrina Azizah
Well i have to admit that this book disappoints me. It's really boring and too predictable. And i just dont get why the writers make Watson look bad.
Anna Hartman
This was a good mystery if you like Sherlock Holmes and easier to solve than the originals, so more accessible to younger kids.

I read this one first not knowing that there was another book before it, but it was still a great book.
