Studio Press, an imprint of Kings Road Publishing, has acquired world rights directly from the Conan Doyle Estate to publish two children’s titles this autumn.
Publishing in November 2018, The Casebooks of Sherlock Holmes: The Pound of the Baskervilles and The Cherry in the Cake will feature four new mysteries for children of 8 and over to solve.
Working alongside the world’s greatest detective, keen investigators will be encouraged to review the evidence from Sherlock’s case notes, diary entries, photographs, maps, puzzles and more, to solve the mysteries. Written by Sally Morgan and illustrated by Federica Frenna, one mystery in each title has been inspired by an existing Sherlock Holmes story.
The world of Sherlock Holmes has been a firm favourite for over 130 years and we are excited to be bringing its intrigue and mystery to a new generation of budding detectives.
