Abstract:

English literature's first and greatest superhero, Sherlock Holmes still fascinates readers more than 100 years after Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created the beloved detective. In this, the first collection of Holmes's stories, the detective uses his uncanny skills to rescue a king from blackmail, to capture an ingenious bank robber, and to save an innocent son accused of patricide. Though readers have good reason to believe Holmes will somehow triumph in all his baffling cases, they still delight in watching "the most perfect reasoning and observing machine the world has seen"--As Dr. Watson calls him - use his encyclopedic knowledge and preternatural powers of deduction to unearth the truth. (An Accelerated Reader title ; Reading Level: Grades: 3-7).
