    There was a lot of cheesy word play in this one that I just loved. I enjoyed the new characters, the bad guys were a touch one-note, but the mystery was interesting (almost reminding me of an Agatha Christie feel to the mystery and the sheer number of potential suspects). There were so many hints at another book that I started to second guess myself, and maybe "The Lost Colony" actually is a sequel to this? I'm so confused. Maybe the future plots that were hinted at were never published? I'll fi There was a lot of cheesy word play in this one that I just loved.

    It was a really fast-paced, very enjoyable and really well-written children’s mystery adventure novel. It had really excellent illustrations, really great characters, really exciting adventure, really well done mystery, really nice humor and a very interesting story. I’m also really looking forward to read Basil’s final adventure, “Basil and the Lost Colony.” I would recommend this book to both children and adults.

    Basil, the great mouse detective, heads west to capture the nortorious J. J. But like his hero Sherlock Holmes and his quest to defeat the nortorious Moriarty, sometimes the fight must continue on another day. The delightful series is marvelously narrated by Ralph Lister whose various voices add much to the telling of the mystery.

    This Basil books actually seemed more like two books, a mexico criminal hideout and a hotel mystery joined together by a horse trip. It made the book feel a bit disjointed. I think if it had just been the hotel case, which I found more interesting and amusing, it would have been a better book.

    Genre: Mystery This book would be great for grade level 2nd and up. One unique feature of this text is the pictures included in the chapters. The pictures really add detail to the story! There is also a table of contents and Cast of Characters page.

    This entry in the series is either extremely disjointed, or bad at holding my attention. Basil solves the mystery by being a snob 😆 2.75 stars

    Basil of Baker Street and The Great Mouse Detective are my CHILDHOOD, okay, so I adore them. Notably, reading them again as an adult, the Suck Fairy is almost entirely absent. They're still smart, they're still full of love, and I still love them. This one in particular is a lot of fun. Villains teaming up! Basil putting the smack down upon people! Shakespeare games! Basil being really offended that one villain dared to (view spoiler)[pass herself off as a librarian (hide spoiler)] ! I just.

    Another cute children's book by Eve Titus. The only downside is that the ending was left open for a follow up story, but this is the last book in the series, so that's a little frustrating (for readers who like tidy endings). However, a great, easy-to-read, short chapter book for new readers, and yet another great introduction to the fantastic Sherlock Holmes of the mouse world. Another cute children's book by Eve Titus.
