My favorite little man in the world, my third grader son, has three bookish occupations of late - Vikings and Napoleon Bonaparte and Sherlock Holmes. He asked me most earnestly if I would feature one of his favorite Christmas presents on my blog - The Case Files of Sherlock Holmes by John Watson. Doesn't want any of you to miss out on the fun including all of those evidence envelopes. How could I say no? This book easily appeals to both children and adults.
"The extraordinary adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the world’s most famous detective have been extensively chronicled by his companion Dr. John H. Watson. Watson’s accounts of Holmes’ endeavors were based on the notes he took during the investigations and the evidence that he and Holmes gathered. These Case Files are, in essence, Watson’s scrapbook. Some of the cases include The Hound of Baskervilles, A Scandal in Bohemia, and The Dancing Men.
For those familiar with Watson’s reports, the notes, letters, official documents, artifacts, and items of evidence add a compelling new dimension to each case. For those who have not studied Watson’s reports before, The Case Files are an excellent way to examine the crimes and even review crucial items of evidence first hand. Carefully filed in special evidence bags are a photograph of the only woman ever to outwit Holmes, the signed confession of a killer, and more!"
