The Lovereading4Kids comment

A charming and exquisite recreation of the miniature Sherlock Holmes story from the library of Queen Mary's famous Dolls' House, on display at Windsor Castle. Alongside the miniature book, which measures just 38.5 x 30 mm, the edition also contains an informative booklet with a transcript of the story and information about the Dolls' House. Queen Mary's Dolls' House is the largest and most famous of its kind in the world, and has a library containing miniature works by all the major writers and artists of the day.

Synopsis

How Watson Learned the Trick by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

This lavish cloth-bound gift edition faithfully recreates in beautiful detail the Sherlock Holmes story Arthur Conan Doyle wrote especially for the Library of Queen Mary's Dolls' House in 1922. In this classic story, Watson tries to mimic Holmes's mastery of the art of deduction with very funny results, making this a book for both adults and children to delight in.

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle was born to a family of Roman Catholics in Edinburgh, in 1859. His father, Charles, was a civil servant who suffered from epilepsy and alcoholism. He was educated in Jesuit schools and eventually lost his faith in Catholicism in favor of his Jesuit training. He would later use his friends and teachers from Stonyhurst College as inspiration for characters in his Holmes stories.
