This book is certain to attract new, young readers to the works of Arthur Conan Doyle. It is a highly engaging, somewhat simplified but not too much so, retelling of this Sherlock Holmes tale. I very much enjoyed reading the story in this version. In addition to the text, there are appealing, cartoon like illustrations, boxes that describe terms that children may not know and fun extras like a list that Dr. Watson wrote or a copy of a telegram. So, get a child you know this book and a magnifying glass. They will soon be trying to solve the case.
Many thanks to to publisher and NetGalley for this title in exchange for an honest review.
