Review

This manga offers a new take on the classic Sherlock Holmes tales. Ten-year-old Christie Holmes is the niece of the famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and she can solve a mystery just as quick as he can!  She is an especially brilliant child, and loves using logic to get to the bottom of crimes.  Join Christie, her canine companion, Nelson, Dr. Watson, and Sherlock for some manga mystery time!

Fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle will enjoy meeting old tales again; this casebook contains versions of the Red-Headed League, The Adventure of the Dancing Men, and The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire. While most of the case details are similar, there have been some significant changes, so Sherlock Holmes purists might not be amused. Surprise! There are vampires in this book!

Visually-appealing, creative, and addictive, this book will be sure to please mystery fans, manga fans, and even those who aren't too sure about either of the genres.
