It is a fun Holmesian romp through the streets of Victorian London, and tries to hit up A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red Headed League, and The Musgrove Ritual in one volume and three parts. They, of course, all tie together at the Richenbach Falls at the end (this is a little bit of a spoiler, but not really as every Holmes adaptation of late has to end there by my observation).
It was a lot of fun to read, and the Muppets irreverence really shines through, but I am not sure this is entirely a kids book - my son was enthralled with it, but I am not sure he was really engaged with it. I loved it tremendously, both for a love of the Muppets and Holmes, but I think it would be lost on many who doesn't have the same Holmes appreciation that I do. I also think that there were times that I felt that the writers and artists were not entirely doing either Holmes or Muppets very well (as a matter of fact, there was only two places where Kermit appeared presentable, and the rest was a horrific nightmarish distortion - not that I could do any better, I assure you, I could not - but they were really humorously salvador-daliesque is some places), but my passion and enjoyment of the both of them trumped the shortcomings.
Fun read, but not really for kids under 10 (not for any reason but that it might confuse or bore them).
Combine Conan-Doyle with the muppets in a graphic novel format..and you have the Muppet Sherlock Holmes. Boom entertainment has a great hit on its hands! This is better than their Muppet Peter Pan!
Think of this as the Muppet theater company in a graphic novel format. This book culled from the four issue comic mini series is a hoot for both Muppets and Holmes fan. I only wish they would do this work for TV weekly.
Gonzo is an absurd Sherlock. Fozzie is a stuffy Watson. Kermit is Lestrade. This comic romp needs no explaining of the Holmes cannon. ..Just read this for fun and laughs. These holmes fans will see the tip of the dearslayer with the crisp writing of Patrick Storck and the muppetized art of Amy Mebberson. These four tales arent great mysteries, just great fun.
Someone asked me "what should I buy for my children? ". I pointed this out this graphic novel in the book store..and he agreed after reading and chuckling after viewing three pages..I Bet you will agree to. For you and your kids, go get and it
