There were 56 original stories written by Conan Doyle and published in The Strand magazine between 1891 and 1929. The stories are divided among five series. This is from the third series, “The Return of Sherlock Holmes”.
In this story Holmes assists a man whose wife is frightened by a series of encrypted notes left around their property. What would most people make of this childish-looking scrawl: a piece of useless junk drawn by a primary school pupil? Or is it actually a secret code? …or more to the point, what does Sherlock Holmes make of it?
While you’re listening you can read background information about Conan Doyle and the story, play word search games based on the story, etc.
