A delightful compilation of 16 classic Sherlock Holmes stories, retold to be accessible for young readers.

Join world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his ever-loyal sidekick Dr. Watson as they embark on a series of daring adventures. Priceless jewels disappear from a hotel suite, a monstrous hound is spotted on the moors and a woman is murdered in a locked room. Can our brilliant hero solve these mysteries and more before disaster strikes?

This thrilling collection brings 16 adventures of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous detective to life, adapted by award-winning children's fiction author Alex Woolf. Told with wit and panache, the cleverly reworked text retains many of the original turns of phrase, while simplifying and clarifying the language and plots to make stories accessible to children.

Stories include:

  • A Study in Scarlet

  • The Hound of the Baskervilles

  • The Speckled Band

  • A Scandal in Bohemia

  • The Red Headed League

  • And many more!

    Perfect for children aged 7+.
