How old were you when you discovered Sherlock?
As part of the Sherlock For Kids series, international best-selling author Mark Williams is proud to present this adaptation for children of the Sherlock Holmes short story The Blue Carbuncle.
This is the British-English edition.
British-English? Although we speak the same language, we spell many words differently depending on which side of the Atlantic we are. UK = colour, US = color; UK = marvellous, US = marvelous; UK = theatre, US= theater, etc. This sometimes causes problem for children at school, so in response to requests from school librarians there are now British-English and American-English versions of the Sherlock For Kids books.
Come join Holmes and Watson as they solve the mystery of the blue carbuncle in a child-friendly, twenty-first century English, with the seamier side of Victorian life left out.
Ideal for children aged 9-12 to get started with the world’s most famous detective.
