Part of the smart, accessible Arcturus Retold series, this splendid 16-book Sherlock Holmes Retold for Children box set is the perfect gift for young fans of mystery, adventure and detective fiction. 


While Conan Doyle’s stories naturally lend themselves well to adaptation and reinvention, Alex Woolf’s spritely re-tellings of 16 classic Sherlock stories are perfectly-pitched for 7+-year-olds, with sparky dialogue and visual descriptions peppering the action, which has been broken into easy-to-digest chapters. In addition, Eve O’Brien’s atmospheric illustrations add further dashes of drama and character, from domestic scenes that depict Holmes and Watson at home, to scene-of-the-crime vignettes


Though ideal for young readers to get stuck into independently, with their charming sense of adventure and lots of lively exchanges between Holmes and Watson, all the books in this glorious giftset are also ideal for sharing and reading aloud.
