Drawn into the dark underbelly of folk tale reality, Holmes and Watson travel the streets of London and into the far English countryside to discover the truth about some of the most famous accounts found in childhood literature. Described in Dr. Watson's inimitable style and with the names changed to protect the innocent, these tales recount how Sherlock Holmes investigated cases involving missing children, a trio of brothers threatened with destruction, and the contents of an ancient box that told a tale of heroism and death.
Enter the world of the world's first consulting detective. Stand again in Baker Street and look up at the windows of 221B. That shadow on the blind, is it Lestrade, coming to tell of a baffling case he has failed to solve? Or is it Mrs. Hudson, bring tea and sandwiches to a suffering client? Could it be the Great Detective himself, pacing up and down the length of the room, wrapping his mighty brain around yet another conundrum presented for his consideration? Join Dr. Watson in these adventures and you'll never think the same about folk tales and nursery rhymes again.

No folklore, just fairy tales.
If you have some under the age of 10 and want to introduce them to Sherlock Holmes, you can use this book. If you like Sherlock Holmes and his methods, this work is pitiful. The first story is just Goldilocks and the three Bears, and the second one is a tired retread of Rumplestiltskin. Don't think I'll listen to the rest of it.
