This book is so funny. I laugh out loud when I read it. And then want to follow whoever is in the room with me and read them selections that I am finding particularly amusing at the moment.
I believe my family dreads it when they see me reading it.
It is such a gem.
Two Ernest's. No wait, NO ERNEST'S! An ailing friend in the country. A troublesome brother in town.
A baby in a bag left at the railway station?
And when the baby is finally found, 30 odd years later it is the return of the bag that is most celebrated.
I love that part.
I can't really give you a review, just go and read it. It is short and sweet, just three acts, I think. You will not be dissapointed.

As Watson investigates present day happenings it reveals a history of Holmes which he had no idea about. This book is one of the best I have read: warm, comforting and familiar. And yet it reveals an ending that I NEVER saw coming and that knocked my socks off.
