So, here are a few Sherlock Holmes mysteries coloring books.

Sherlock Holmes Color In Classics
It’s elementary, my dear artist! Use markers, colored pencils, or monochromatic shading to create beautiful images inspired by the Sherlock Holmes stories in your Sherlock Holmes coloring book. Color in 70 pages of scenes related to the classics The Hound of the Baskervilles, “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle,” “The Adventure of the Copper Beeches,” “The Man with the Twisted Lip,” “Silver Blaze,” and “The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone.” Coloring can be a relaxing activity that helps to improve imagination and mental acuity. Great fun for all ages!
Sherlock Holmes coloring book review
I had a great time coloring in this coloring book. There are all sorts of different types of drawings from things like a pipe with billowing smoke that could come from any classic mystery story to a set of clues from specific Sherlock Holmes’ stories. There are a total of 70 different designs in this coloring book.
Some drawings are more intricate than others which makes this perfect for someone who wants to share the coloring book with a younger child while still being challenged themselves.
If you enjoy coloring for relaxation or simply as a creative outlet, you’ll enjoy the books in the Color in Classics series. Other books in this series include Alice in Wonderland and Grimms Fairy Tales. I love the images in the Sherlock Holmes mysteries coloring book I received.
What should I use to color?
So, a few thoughts after using this coloring book. Gel pens, colored pencils, and crayons all work great on these pages with no bleed through. If you use markers, you may see shadowing or bleed through on the page behind it so be careful. There is a drawing activity on the back of each coloring page. So, if you enjoy drawing, you can do that activity. Or, you can use it as a blank page in case you want to frame or hang your colored page.
