A mystery about a supernatural hound that preys on the Baskerville family. A classic mystery, and a must-read for fans of Sherlock Holmes. Spooky and clever.

I especially liked this little book because of the illustrations. These short stories are so addicting but like any Sherlock Holmes story, it almost never makes any sense towards the end.

Wow. Stellar book, I must say. I came across this book when my grandmother bought me this book in a big bundle of books. I perused through them and found this one. I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, and this book sparked an interest in me. I started reading it and got really confused. However, I eventually figured it out and got the hang of things. Skip the next paragraph if you do not want the book spoiled in a brief summary.

This book is about a hound that is killing people in the graveyard ne

After all the hardships, I can finally grab this book in my hand!

Well, not in this edition actually, I read it as in translation version of this, but since I can't find the translation version to be reviewed, I'll put my review in this edition.

The Hound of Baskervilles' case is one of another top story of Sherlock's series. I like how in this edition, Watson proves himself to be able to investigate the case without any lead from Sherlock (view spoiler)

The story in itself is simply written and a quick, easy read. The illustrations accompanying the writing - one page words, one page a picture - are nicely done and story-appropriate, although I could have done without the captions. They either give the story away if you read it before the written page or are superfluous, essentially a doubling up of information which is absolutely unnecessary.
Yes, I know, these 'Illustrated Classic Editions' are directed towards younger readers, however, they ar

I read this book for the first time a long time ago because I was interested in it after watching an episode of Sherlock that was based on it. The book itself was really good, but there were some things about it I didn't quite understand. Probably because I was stuck on what happened in the show, it messed up my memory on the book so I had to read it again. I still have a difficult time with it, but I think the book was really interesting and I recommend it to anyone who has read any other of th ...more

Bravo! A good fast read! now i am hooked. This was such a great, easy and creative book. i was hooked after the first page.

The characters were easy to fall in love with and follow, along with the story. the author made the mental visions so easy and vivid of the surroundings and the characters actions felt so real.

i would highly recommend this author and this book.

It was a good mystery, (of course!) and it was filled with adventure and fun. The plot twists are amazing, and of course the characters are quite fun. It's a lovely read for anyone willing to just sit down and just read it.
Read this book with my son in about 5 days. We both enjoyed it. I think it was his first mystery. He was anxious to learn who-dun-it. The pictures were helpful in keeping him involved and included a summary of each page. I hope he will choose to read more of these stories.

A classic and it's easy to see why. Though not very complicated, the story held my interest and proved a satisfying read.

This is of course the classic Holmes. It was what started it all, as such it has a special place in the canon. The descriptions are wonderful while not being too much.

Delaney is actually reading this right now - she picked it up at a book swap. I wish I could still find these - I loved them!
