With their previous collaboration, The Hound of the Baskervilles (2009), Edginton and Culbard opened the Sherlock Holmes wing of the Illustrated Classics series, and they now return with this adaptation of the book that introduced the famed detective duo. There are many elements to this tale: the meeting of Watson and Holmes; a murdered body in a bloodstained room with no obvious weapon; a lengthy exploration of the crime’s whys and wherefores that takes readers to the American West and focuses on the Mormons. Yet all this is neatly woven together and given a cinematic feel through both text and art. The story moves along at good clip, while the action-filled panels have a dusky palette that evokes Victorian England. The flashbacks to events in the U.S. are done primarily in sepia tones that work well to evoke a sense of memory. The one disconcerting note is Holmes himself, who looks more like Dudley Do-Right than the lanky, laconic sleuth. Still, like previous incarnations, this should bring him plenty of new fans. Grades 7-12. --Ilene Cooper

The only thing is that the nipple holes are too close together...waaay too close together, but it doesn’t matter because the sticky thing doesn’t hurt my nipples at all when removed. Another thing is that after a while I feel as if it will unstick on me but maybe it’s because I was trying it on with no top at all.
Also if you want an example on how the sticky feels and the texture and softness, to me it feels like the sticky,squishy things you used to put on your windows for decoration. Or those squishy things you got from machines and threw them at the wall :) it does come very well packaged for care too.
