BASIL OF BAKER STREET
by EVE TITUS Pictures by PAUL GALDONE
Everyone knows that the Mystery of the Missing Twins could never have been solved by an ordinary detective. But Basil, of course, was far from ordinary. Famous in the world of mice as Sherlock Holmes is in the world of people, Basil listened often and long at the feet of the great Mr. Holmes.
It's a rattling good mystery with a harrowing trip to Mousecliffe-on-the-Sea, a strange meal at the Grey-mouse Inne, a secretive boarding of the yacht Victoria, and an exciting encounter with the Terrible Three.
BASIL OF BAKER STREET is dedicated to Adrian M. Conan Doyle, who has written the author, "I think your idea charming. . . [one] that children should thoroughly enjoy."
EVE TITUS, author of the very Successful ANATOLE and ANATOLE AND THE CAT, has also published stories and poems for children in the magazine field. Mrs. Titus lives in Jackson Heights, Long Island, New York, with her husband and son Richard.
PAUL GALDONE, well-known illustrator of children's books, did the pictures for Eve Titus' ANATOLE (runner-up for the Caldecott Medal) and ANATOLE AND THE CAT. Mr. Galdone lives in New City, Rockland County, New York, with his wife and two children, Joanna and Ferencz.
