Solving Sherlock Holmes Volume II: Puzzle Your Way Through the Tales

50999073. sx318

Solving Sherlock Holmes Volume II is the second collection of 144 puzzles with a Holmesian theme. Released 1st June 2021 by Quarto on their Wellfleet Press imprint, it's 192 pages and is available in paperback format.

This is an engaging and very well put together meta-puzzle book full of 6 chapters with 24 puzzles in each chapter. The book itself is a puzzle and readers follow clues from one puzzle to the next by solving clues, and following the maps provided to the next puzzle and so on until the overarching puzzle is solved. The puzzles are appropriate for all-ages, but would likely prove challenging for younger kids. It would be a really good choice for a family puzzle/game night over several sessions.

The artwork is basic, but clear and understandable. Because of the nature of the puzzle-work, it might not be a good choice for public or school library acquisition. It would make a good puzzle book for vacation or road trips/travel. 

Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
