Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles

Author: Arthur Conan Doyle

Adapted by:  John Green

Publisher:  Dover Publications

First Publication:  November 2014

Read for the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX Challenge and Graphic Novel Challenge

Graphic Novel Challenge #51

At first glance, the art looks too simplistic.  Then when you look inside, the publishers tell you this is so young readers can color it themselves.  i thought this was a good way of getting younger readers into the story.

The art depicts the way I would expect the characters and scenery to look.

The story, which does not need summarized here, is abridged but you would not realize it if you were not familiar with the original version.  John Green does an excellent job of capturing the heart and feel of the story.  

I would highly recommend this for readers of all ages.

  1. Interesting Concept! Dover is famous for their detailed colouring books.
