The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle - Arthur Conan Doyle

Last year, I bought the full set of the The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, illustrated with Lego builds instead of the classic drawings, through Kickstarter.

Now, the reason for this was actually threefold:
1. I like Sherlock Holmes (the classic works, not the series so much)
2. I like Lego
3. When the Smurf gets english at school, Conan Doyle is usually on the required reading list.  With Lego pictures it might be a tat more intresting to learn them...

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson investigate the curious discovery of a blue carbuncle in the crop of a Christmas goose, abandoned by a man during a scuffle with some street ruffians.  Holmes makes a series of deductions concerning the owner of a tattered old hat recovered alogn with the goose, and thus sets out on the trail of the audacious thief who stole the precious stone five days previously.

In this book series, the short stories comprimising The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes have been illustrated with Lego builds instead of the classic Sidney Paget drawings.  The builds are made such to really closely represent the original drawings, and adds an extra twist to the short stories.

Each of the stories has been released now in it`s own booklet form, and it is great fun to re-read these little gems from my youth years, and theymake classic (pun intended) additions to the Legobrary!
