I am perfectly willing to act as business manager to the Franco-Midland Hardware Company, Limited. - Mr. Hall Pycroft.

Baudet's adaption is so enjoyable and entertaining, if they were available years ago, I would have bought the entire collection for my children. The drawings are well done. All of the major points in the original work are presented clearly for children to understand and appreciate Conan Doyle's work.This is not danger. It is definite destruction. Even with all your cleverness, you do not realise it. You must stand clear, Mr Holmes, or you will be trodden underfoot. In the attempt to save a woman's marriage, Holmes is forced to come face-to-face with one of his worst enemies: Charles Augustus Milverton. This abominable villain is holding hostage the secrets of London's rich and powerful, and threatening to ruin the innocent Lady Eva. Can Holmes and Watson stop him before time runs out? Holmes would solve many highly complex problems and challenging cases, all recorded by his trusted partner and friend, Dr John H Watson. They pursue the mind-bending cases together. Even though Holmes’ ability to solve problems seems perplexing and challenging to grasp, he has a straightforward approach to his objectives. “When you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” When Holmes is asked to look into a cryptic message received by Mary Morstan, neither he nor Watson expect to be drawn into a decades-old web of betrayal. Soon they’re conducting dangerous moonlit expeditions to uncover the meaning of the sign of the four, and resolve a long-buried crime. Holmes is confronted with an old mystery when he is summoned to visit a lady who refuses to show her face. A grisly crime committed seven years ago has had terrible consequences, and it is up to Holmes to save the veiled lodger from her own conscience.

A leisurely research trip turns into a race against time when Professor Soames comes to Holmes and Watson with a bizarre mystery. Three students are suspected of cheating – can Holmes solve the case in time for the examination to go ahead? Tell me, Watson, do you get a creeping feeling when you watch the snakes in the zoo? That's how I feel when I see Milverton. I've met more than fifty murderers in my life, but he is worse than all of them. The Red-Headed League is looking for a new member to assist with minor tasks. The salary for this position will be four pounds a week. All red-headed men in good health and over the age of twenty-one will be considered. While the police work to trace the missing diamond, Holmes attempts to reunite a Christmas dinner and its owner. But when the detective comes across the jewel, Holmes and Watson find themselves in a race against time to save an innocent man’s life. Goods that by reason of their nature, cannot be returned - (Items such as underwear, where the 'hygiene patch' has been removed, or cosmetics where the seal has been broken).

Although it follows the basic plot of the original A Study in Scarlet, this book has simplified sentences and side notes that describe terms used that might not be familiar to kids today. An example of these side notes include the description of words like; hansome cab. Illustrations are also included. This is not intended to be a full statement of all your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations. Full details of your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations are available in the UK from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or your Local Authority's Trading Standards Office. Perhaps the best way to get kids into Holmes is to just have them read the original 56 short stories and four novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Although the Holmes stories have a reputation as murder mysteries, the bulk of the short stories don’t actually involve murder at all. (Though the first two novels, A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of the Four, certainly do start with killings.) Sir – our client, Mr Robert Ferguson, has made an enquiry concerning vampires. Since we are an engineering firm, unfortunately the matter is not one upon which we can advise. Perhaps you can help. War becomes a real possibility after a top-secret document is stolen from the Foreign Office. But why has the thief waited ten weeks to sell the treaty? Holmes and Watson are plunged into a world of international diplomacy only to find that danger can come from unexpected quarters.

The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. Hunter,After a frightened Violet Hunter turns to Holmes and Watson for advice, the crime-fighting duo find themselves pulled into a dangerous mystery. For there’s far more than secrets hiding in the halls of The Copper Beeches. Things are also kept somewhat lighter for the younger readers with the inclusion of illustrations. Whilst the original stories in the Strand Magazine had illustrations that were aiming to be realistic, these are very stylised pieces. The people are very angular and have strange proportions, and sometimes don't quite line up properly to their surroundings. Instead of this feeling strange, however, it helps to add to the ease of access to the younger readers. It is with great sadness that we report the death of Miss Julia Stoner of Stoke Moran. The cause of death remains unknown. Holmes plays the violin and has the habit of using drugs like morphine and cocaine, both legal during 19th century England. Holmes’ odd obsession with crime-solving and weird habits meant that he would often skip several days of meals. During some cases, this extended to the point of dangerous effects on his health.

To date, there are 12 adaptions published. None of them are Sir Author Conan Doyle's most famous work, The Hound of the Baskervilles. I appreciate that Baudet adapted his lesser-known work to allow children access to stories they may not have discovered otherwise. S.H.The secret plans for a submarine super-weapon have been stolen and it's up to Holmes to find them. But with the government, the military and even his own brother turning up the pressure, can the genius detective unravel the web of secrets, spies and cunning crimes before it's too late?
