    1. Grades 4-7 There have been a plethora of Sherlock Holmes mystery series aimed at middle grade readers-- most involving a Holmes relative who has inherited the detecting gene. This particular series, based on the original stories, looks like it will be a winner for a number of reasons. Certainly, the graphic novel format may appeal to readers who might not normally pick up a Sherlock Holmes mystery. The authors and illustrator do an excellent job of keeping the original tone and that 19th century [...]

    2. I love the funny and interesting parts of it. I hate how movies completely changed the actual story. I liked it a lot! Great book! :)

    3. A short graphic novel of where Sherlock crosses wits with Irene Adler and loses. However in the overall sense, he does win as Irene assures him that she will not trouble the King of Bohemia any further. Sherlock only asks for the photo of Irene as his payment. It is proof that she got under his skin and he is intrigued by her.

    4. It seems that there is no case foo hard for Sherlock Holmes. Especially if you as Watson, the man is a genius if not a little crazy. This particular adventure finds Sherlock and Watson working for royalty. There mission, to retrieve a picture that is being used to blackmail this certain royal member. It seems that many people have been sent in to retrieve this picture and none have succeeded. None of them were Sherlock and Watson though. It would seem that they've never had a target like Miss Ir [...]

    5. In this short comic of Sherlock Holmes the clever, antagonizing Sherlock once again stays one step ahead of everyone, or so it seems. With the help of John he searches out the location of an incriminating photograph. This was similar to all Sherlock remakes just simplified to a childish point. This is a cute, quick read. Since the TV series Sherlock and the Movies Sherlock Holmes, staring Robert Downey Junior, came out I find it hard to be pleased with portrayals of Sherlock Holmes. This book wa [...]

    6. This novel is basically a retelling of Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story, “A Scandal in Bohemia.” The story is about Sherlock and Watson taking on a job from the king of Bohemia. The king wants Sherlock to retrieve an incriminating document from Irene Adler. This document can ruin the king’s marriage plans if it is made public. Sherlock comes up with an ingenious plan but things do not turn out the way they expected.It is an interesting adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock story, [...]

    7. This comic book version of Sherlock Holmes was a fast and fun read. Holmes and Watson take a case to recover an item for the King of Bohemia from a former lover. They use skill, timing, wit, and dress-up to complete the task.I haven't read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's version of this story, so I don't know how closely this comic/ short graphic novel follows it, but I enjoyed it! I only gave it four stars because I didn't really like the logic in it, it seemed that the way things unfolded wouldn't ha [...]

    8. This was a typical Sherlock Holmes story, there is someone that needs his help to do something and he uses his deductive reasoning to figure out what is going on. I am not a fan of this style of writing, it progressed very quickly and I feel like there is so much that was missing from the story. It isn't something that I would ever recommend to someone simply because it doesn't provide you with the time to care for the characters. If I hadn't previously seen the Sherlock Holmes movies, I would h [...]

    9. “Sherlock Holmes and a Scandal in Bohemia” (On the Case with Holmes & Watson #1 – Murray Shaw) Great series of adaptations. This one starts them well.Of Irene Adler Sherlock says: “As she stepped into the carriage, I saw her face. It was one a man might die for!”“Never before had his cool-headed reasoning allowed him to comment on a woman's charms.”“Holmes went onto his bedroom and soon returned looking like a gentle, simple-minded country clergyman.”- - -

    10. In “A Scandal in Bohemia” we meet Irene Adler. She is portrayed by Rachel McAdams in the 2009 Sherlock Holmes movie. This is a quick three chapter short story that can be read in a a lazy afternoon. The traditional Sherlock character does not disappoint but you do not see much character development in Dr. Watson. Read the book and enjoy a quick visit to 1890s London.

    11. Sherlock Holmes and his stories are the perfect edition to children's graphic novels. It's the perfect amount of mystery and suspense for the young crowd and the comic style gives a easy to follow timeline. This is #1 in the series and it starts off with a bang - has Sherlock met his match? Read along with Dr. Watson as your guide to find out!

    12. In this first graphic adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Holmes meets the clever Irene Adler, one of the few characters (and the only woman) to ever beat the great detective at his own game. I've been impressed in all these adaptations at how faithfully they have kept to the original text, and yet are still age-appropriate and interesting mysteries for kids today.

    13. Short quick read about Sherlock Holmes solving a mystery for the King of Bohemia all centered around a previous love. It was very short, and I feel like the story could have been developed more had it been in book form instead of graphic novel form. This is a quick read that read more like a picture book for children rather than a mystery for adults.

    14. This graphic novel is a fairly good, though simple, adaptation of one of Sherlock Holmes' tales. The language is still slightly formal, but certainly accessible for a younger audience. There is a recap at the end that breaks down how the mystery was solved and there is also a list of other various suggested readings, including fiction, nonfiction and websites.

    15. This graphic adaptation of a Scandal in Bohemia is very faithful to the original story written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It doesn't really supplement the original story in any fresh, new way but I don't think that it is meant to. It's great that a 4th grader can have a fun time reading through this graphic novel and have an exact knowledge of a classic story.

    16. I noticed these at the library, and loved the idea, so I checked a few out and loved them even more. I have seen the play for this particular case, and was intrigued, so I thought this would be a good one to read :)

    17. I'm not a graphic reader but I wanted to give this series a go since I love Sherlock Holmes and all of the knock-offs that came after. Great graphic novel series to introduce and hook young readers to our favorite super sleuth and his ever faithful sidekick.

    18. This was a good, quick read. The graphics were really cool and the story was interesting and witty. There was good dialogue and it had a fun little twist at the end also. If you like Sherlock Holmes you are sure to like this.

    19. A nice graphic version that would serve as a great introduction to Sherlock Holmes for kids. (Mine read it in about 10 minutes, and liked it.) I haven't read the originals, but we've been watching Sherlock lately, so I was curious.

    20. This is a cleverly written and wonderfully illustrated graphic novel starring the famed mystery solving duo of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. In this novel, the two work together to solve the mystery of a stolen photograph and Sherlock uncovers a surprise- he has been outsmarted by a woman.

    21. True to the original story, this graphic novel representation of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson is spot on. Infused with the subtle humor that is Holmes and his disguises, while honoring the tradition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this graphic novel is a winner.

    22. Sherlock Holmes is always awesome, and this graphic novel does a good job of bringing him to a new generation. That being said, it seems like the mystery was simplified a bit to fit within the space of the book - I would have liked it better if it were longer and more detailed.

    23. As a fan of mysteries, you may enjoy Sherlock Holmes and a Scandal in Bohemia. Retold in graphic novel form, Sherlock Holmes attempts to retrieve a photograph being used to blackmail the King of Bohemia and finds something even more valuable.

    24. This is a wonderful adaptation of the first Sherlock Holmes story. The artwork is delightful and Mr. Shaw and Ms. Cosson have captured the essence of the story perfectly. I wish these had been available when my daughters were young!

    25. This is a simplistic retelling of a Sherlock Holmes story. The illustrations were very rudimentary and I didn't find it that interesting.

    26. A quick read, only took me less than 10 mins to finish.In this graphic novel, Sherlock Holmes got outsmarted by "the woman" Fetching indeed!

    27. This Graphic Novel is a great introduction to Sherlock Holmes for higher elementary. It mixes comic scenes with Watson's narrative.
