Now your child can enjoy The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle as a Michael Clay Thompson language-illustrated classic. The novel is reproduced in its entirety and includes Michael’s “language illustrations”—close-ups of poetic techniques, four-level analyses of interesting grammar, and comments about writing strategies. Challenging vocabulary is defined at the bottom of each page.
The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the most famous novels in English, a literary masterpiece of suspense and mystery. Conan Doyle’s skill as a writer enables him, according to Michael, to “lift the words of the story above the random clutter of ordinary, toneless prose.”
