it was amazing


A fun way to introduce kids to the exciting world of Sherlock Holmes. The illustrations are very well done, and make the whole book a lot of fun to read. The characters are portrayed in the classical fashion--Watson in a tweed coat, and Holmes with pipe in hand in almost every scene. The dialogue must necessarily be shortened to fit this smaller volume, but the key conversations are preserved nicely.

The illustrations are in monochrome for a reason--so that young readers can have fun penciling, or using some markers to add color.

The Watson resembles David Burke of the PBS "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series" (Burke was the "first" Watson in that series.)

THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES will be a fun, enjoyable read for young readers (and artists, too).
