Sherlock Holmes! Perhaps the greatest, and certainly the most famous, literary detective in history. His tales have entertained readers for well over 100 years, and his adventures have been adapted into over 200 movies. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's keen investigator has thrilled fans of all ages.
But ... did you know that some of his original stories might not be suitable for younger readers? Doyle created a sharp, insightful character ... but many do not realize that his original incarnation had a cocaine habit? That he smoked his pipe, not just casually, but almost compulsively?
Presented here are six Sherlock Holmes adventures which have been adapted for more suitable reading by today's youth. Six tales which parents can allow their children to read without harmful influence, six tales for more family-friendly tastes.
Sherlock Holmes, as he always should have been!
Includes adapted versions of the stories:
A Scandal in Bohemia
The Red-Headed League
A Case of Identity
The Boscombe Valley Mystery
The Five Orange Pips
The Man with the Twisted Lip
