Simplified and shortened, this is an accessible retelling of the great literary classic and remains faithful to the original text in its treatment of the story. Dastardly deeds are afoot at Baskerville Hall, and when Sir Charles Baskerville is found quite literally scared to death Sherlock Holmes is suspicious. Could the legendary curse of the Hound of the Baskerville really be true, or is it something altogether more sinister? This title is perfect for enthusiastic young readers, who will be mesmerised by these stories and encouraged to pursue an interest in literature. It is suitable for older readers who prefer a quick read.
