Look out! Here comes a new look for Basil. First Basil's riding on the back and a quiet burro enjoying the scenery, all those tumbleweeds, heading for the West to solve a mystery at the Grand Canyon when before you know it he's hit with another tricky case, The Case of the Smiling Smugglers. Will Sherlock Holmes of the mouse world and Dr. Watson of the mouse world be able to solve two cases at once? And find the evil person behind all this
My girls (4&5) like to watch the Disney movie "The Great Mouse Detective." The movie was based on the Basil of Baker Street books so we started looking for them. My husband reads them a chapter each night before bed. The girls really enjoy the story and so do we. A "simple" mystery that is not to scary, with well thought out characters. In this book Basil is trying to get to the Grand Canyon to solve a mystery at a hotel but before he can get there he ends up involved in capturing a band of smugglers. This is the last book in the Basil of Baker Street mysterys and my family gives it two-thumbs up!
Why are there so few Basil books, they are witty and well developed and just scary enough for young readers.
