A nice short collection of stories, but all it really does is leave you salivating for more. Definitely a great gift for young readers, as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle keeps his language easy to understand for readers of all ages.There are only nine stories in this small volume, but they serve as an excellent stepping stone for readers unfamiliar with the greater mythos of Sherlock Holmes, Watson, and even the infamous Prof. Moriarty.
