HARPERCOLL

The extraordinary adventures of the world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes, as faithfully recounted by his comrade, Dr. Watson, have captivated readers of all ages for over a century. The stories' blend of heartpounding, fast-paced action and mind-boggling deductive reasoning is as riveting today as it was when first published.

This deluxe illustrated edition contains Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first twelve stories and includes such famous cases as "The Red-headed League," in which Holmes uncovers a well-concealed, devilishly clever criminal plot; "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle," in which Holmes must trap a jewel thief--with astonishing results; "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," in which Holmes and Watson find themselves dealing with treachery, violence, and deadly snakes; and nine more equally thrilling and puzzling mysteries.

Magnificently illustrated with twelve powerful watercolors by award-winning artist Barry Moser, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes features the complete text of the original collection of Doyle's short stories and is an ideal introduction to the fascinating world of this mesmerizing detective.

Sherlock Holmes is a classic mystery novel, and I think everyone should try reading it. The great thing about Sherlock Holmes books is that there are many short stories, mysteries and crimes in one novel.
I think it is most suitable for children 10 to 15 but if you are 20 and you still haven't read it than you should certainly read at least one of the short stories!

Much better than "A Study In Scarlet"...! If you want to immerse yourself in a few good Sherlockian tales, make this your pick.

The nice thing about Sherlock stories is that, being short stories, they can be completely absorbed and reflected upon in a much shorter time frame than novels. These stories are no less rich or dense though. They are wholly satisfying.

Intriguing mysteries. Easy to pick up and put down because it is a bunch of short stories. The mysteries will keep you guessing and you will be baffled at how Sherlock Holmes finds solutions to them.
