Body thought to be that of E.J. Drebber discovered last night in empty London house. No obvious cause of death. Address given as Cleveland Ohio. Any information would be appreciated. After a mysterious murder leaves the police baffled, the world's best amateur detective is asked to investigate. Along with his fellow lodger, Dr Watson, Sherlock Holmes sets about uncovering a quest for revenge that runs far deeper than anybody suspected. A simplification of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, perfect for young fans of mystery books. A great introduction to classics for children aged 7+.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A classic which in this new edition has been added the illustrations created by Arianna Bellucci, that gives the book a more modern and contemporary character." - Libros Happy, Netgalley review "I hope to introduce my 6-year-old to Sherlock Holmes soon and this book will be a great way to do so. I definitely recommend this for younger readers" - Kennedy Penn-O'Toole, Librarian " I thoroughly enjoyed it, the story sticking to the plot that we know and love yet simplified for a younger audience. I loved the illustrations from Arianna Bellucci and also the explanations of terms that children may not be aware of" - Karen O'Hare, Netgalley review "I really enjoyed reading this, I have never read a Sherlock Holmes book. It introduced you to the main characters and was a great start to a collection for middle grade. My son is 7 and I would definitely get him reading this once he's moved on from his first chapter books." - Becky Way, Netgalley review "An illustrated version of one of the best whodunnits in the world; easy to read and follow (some words are explained throughout the text). I really enjoyed this book! I would recommend it to my students" - Carmen, Educator "Ive read all the Sherlock Holmes books and I loved that this book allows our younger generation to enjoy Sherlock and his sidekick Dr Watson. I will definitely get this for my daughter aged 10yrs to read as she enjoys crime and mystery novels. I would happily read the others in the series." - Charley Reads, blogger "A terrific way to introduce young children to one of the most famous detectives ever - Sherlock Holmes. I recommend this to all young budding sleuths and detectives as a way to learn about an important literary character along with some historical information.
