Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles (Dover Graphic Novel Classics) by John Green (Adapted by), Arthur Conan Doyle

22323394The great detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. John Watson are introduced to a younger generation in theses 46 pages. The story is short and a quick read perfect for kids looking for a different kind of graphic novel.

In this adventure Holmes and Watson investigate a mysterious death and a curse. Unlike the Sherlocks we all know and love from TV (Elementary and Sherlock), this Sherlock is not rude and condescending. 

I did feel the story was a bit rushed and over explained every pane, but I also understand that the target audience is in a much younger demographic than me (wow, that in no way made me sound old), so I definitely say get for your kids, they'll eventually want to read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's book.
