    A terrific blend of Holmes stories and folklore Staying true to Sir Doyle Puhl keeps the interplay between Watson and Holmes alive I'm a harsh critic when it comes to Holmes retellings so consider this high praise My Rating 5 stars

    My thanks to Steve and Timi at MX Books for my review copy of this book and for continuing to share Sherlock Holmes with the worldThese adventures of Sherlock Holmes are set in similar situations to Folk Tales such as “The Bremen town Musicians” or “Robin Hood” Placing Holmes in this world makes for some terrific storiesThis isn’t the world of Fairy Tales The stories are not full of magical beings fairy godmothers or The Wizard of Oz The author states that the stories do not contain this element because “magic is illogical” And yet there is an undercurrent of people and events that could be interrupted as “magical”Folk Tales were invented to make children aware of dangers in the world There was a true fear of wolves witches devils demons and such To let children remember the danger stories were written often with a moral to teach cautionThese tales are meant to teach children about Sherlock HolmesI am going to skip my usual detailed thoughts on each individual story as I cannot see how to word the brief glimpse into each tale without spoiling the entire taleIt is my opinion that the stories in this volume go a bit deeper than the ones in volume 1 I am not saying that the author has changed a lot but it is harder to spot the Folk Tale behind the story All in all it is a pretty good readI give this volume of stories five starsuoth the Raven
