    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 world These 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 stories.This 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 caution.These tales are meant to teach children about Sherlock Holmes I 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 tale.It 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 read I give this volume of stories five stars Quoth the Raven
