May 2010 Guest Editor Philip Ardagh comments:
I discovered the 'consulting detective' Sherlock Holmes when I was about nine and have remained hooked ever since. I've written a humorous adult book using some of the original Strand magazine illustrations. Not long ago, I was on BBC Radio 4 taking listeners on a journey around the Sherlock Holmes Museum in Baker Street, London. I return to the books for pleasure with regularity. The short stories make fantastic reading for children, with a clear beginning, middle and end, along with plenty of excitement, logical deduction and pure hokum. Sherlock Holmes has many imitators, but he's the original and best.
John Walsh, author and Independent columnist: "Irresistible puzzle-solving tales of the chilly Victorian master-sleuth and his dim medical sidekick."
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes AND The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Iain Pears, Ed Glinert
This collection includes many of the famous cases - and great strokes of brilliance - that made the legendary Sherlock Holmes one of fiction's most popular creations. With his devoted amanuensis, Dr Watson, Holmes emerges from his smoke filled rooms in Baker Street to grapple with the forces of treachery, intrigue and evil in such cases as The Speckled Band', in which a terrified woman begs their help in solving the mystery surrounding her sister's death, or A Scandal in Bohemia', which portrays a European king blackmailed by his mistress. In Silver Blaze' the pair investigate the disappearance of a racehorse and the violent murder of its trainer, while in The Final Problem' Holmes at last comes face to face with his nemesis, the diabolical Professor Moriarty - 'the Napoleon of crime'.
