Horn Book (Fall 2010)

These bare-bones adaptations are styled as graphic novels, which may appeal to reluctant readers. Unfortunately, the dialogue is stilted, the plot points aren't always clear, and there's no strong sense of Sherlock Holmes or Dr. Watson's personalities. Illustrations in muted tones favor wide-eyed female characters (` la manga). Each volume includes a common brief biography of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Reading list. Glos. [Review covers these Graphic Planet: The Graphic Novel Adventures of Sherlock Holmes titles: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of Abbey Grange, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Dancing Men, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Empty House, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Norwood Builder, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Red-Headed League, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Speckled Band.]



Library Media Connection (October 2010)

The timeless appeal of Holmes and Watson, reinforced with large panels on each page, clear colors, and easily readable font in high-contrast white bubbles, will make this set of adventures in demand with emerging, reluctant, and struggling readers. All titles contain a cast of characters, glossary, about the author, additional works, and a website section. The author adapted the text and the illustrator created the artwork in all stories, adding further consistency to the series. Although The Speckled Band adaptation varies a bit from the original story (Holmes? slashing at the snake is not shown as the reason the snake attacks the stepfather), the series doesn?t shy away from violence. This series is a nice way to introduce readers to Sherlock Holmes. Recommended. Lori Robinson, Librarian, Smyrna (Delaware) High School Guinea PIG, Pet Shop Private Eye



School Library Journal (May 1, 2010)

Gr 3-8-Coming off the release of the popular live-action Sherlock Holmes movie, this series hopes to capitalize on children's interest in the intrepid investigator. Readers discover the real stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle behind the Sherlock Holmes in the media. The stories are simplified, and sometimes the twisting plots can be hard to follow in just a few brief lines. By taking out so much text, the books lose some of the subtleties and complexities of the cases. However, the colorful artwork is of average quality, and the layout is clean and uncluttered, so the books might attract kids and lead a few of them to other works.-Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
