Sherlock's Night Before Christmas: A Mystery
This charming Christmas mystery is told in verse and beautiful illustrations—a perfect holiday treat for Sherlock fans of all ages!
In the rhyme and meter of Clark Clement Moore’s classic Christmas poem The Night Before Christmas, Sherlock Holmes tracks clues through his familiar haunts to “eliminate the impossible” and catch his nemesis Moriarty in his dastardly crimes. When he discovers the jolly old gent with the white beard dipping his hand into a bag full of toys, Sherlock surmises that “whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” Or is it?
Sherlock’s Night Before Christmas is part of a series of illustrated verse books based on classic literary characters. All written by Julie Petersen and illustrated by Sheryl Dickert, the others include Mr. Darcy’s Night Before Christmas and Scrooge’s Night Before Christmas.
