Silly Side of Sherlock Holmes
A true Sherlock Holmes fan since age nine, Philip Ardagh owns a variety of strange editions of the original canon, including one in Pitman's shorthand English. He's always felt that Holmes's humorous side has been largely ignored. The Silly Side of Sherlock Holmes does nothing to redress the balance. It's a shameless piece of frivolous fun, which, under test conditions, produced everything from suppressed chortles to out and out guffaws. Ideal for everyone from Sherlock Holmes fans to people who quite like reading silly captions. Sometimes.
Praise for The Not-So-Very-Nice Goings-On at Victoria Lodge
"I love [it]. Utterly ridiculous, which I mean as a compliment - it's like Edward Gorey, only cheating a bit because someone else has done the illustrations.' The Bookseller
"[A] laudable example of that brave dying breed - the Christmas humour book that has nothing to do with television, magazines or politics.' The Sunday Times
"a very strange book indeed. . ." Mariella Frostrup Open Book
