Rebecca K. Reynolds deftly renders this lively series, which is oriented to kids. Six stories offer an excellent sampling of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Reynolds introduces Holmes as confident, clever, and sometimes vague, while her Dr. Watson is kind, humble, and has a subtle sense of humor. In "A Scandal in Bohemia," listeners will savor meeting wisecracking, indomitable Irene Adler, the only woman to outsmart an almost speechless Holmes. "The Adventures of the Speckled Band" is Reynolds's most frightening account, with Helen Stoner bravely assisting Holmes in solving the murder of her sister. Finally, in "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle," the clever use of a Christmas goose is instantly compelling, and listeners will be moved by a compassionate conclusion.
