Priyadarshni Palanikumar | 27 comments I've read this book,
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

It was an abridged, children's edition. But, it is nowhere listed to the parent series of Sherlock Holmes (un-numbered)
https://www.goodreads.com/series/4999...

Or even aligned with the series equivalent
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

I'm confused about how to tag this into the series.

Furthermore, Great Illustrated Classics is not a valid series by GR standards.

Priyadarshni Palanikumar | 27 comments The whole series is invalid, right? That's what I thought. Let me ask about this in the series queries.
