The fascinating true story of the inspiring writer Arthur Conan Doyle, and how he created the world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, is brought to life for children by multi-award winning author Linda Bailey.
How is a writer made? How is a legend created? After a troubled childhood, Arthur's only comfort is using his extraordinary imagination to write fantastic stories. He creates Sherlock Holmes, a genius detective. At first his stories are rejected, but Arthur is persistent and eventually the public take notice. It isn't long until Sherlock Holmes makes Arthur one of the most famous authors in the world - but what happens when Arthur tries to kill off his hero?
