The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third novel in Michael Clay Thompson’s Shadow Trilogy, which is part of the Royal Fireworks Language Arts Curriculum. The choice of classic novels, with their illustrations and accompanying teacher manuals, have the purpose of enhancing students’ reading and enjoyment and show what full-powered language arts can do.
Thompson shows how to look closely at Doyle’s grammar, poetics, punctuation, and choice of vocabulary. These are the devices that "Lift the words of the story above the random clutter of ordinary, toneless prose.”
Highlighted in the text are over 275 vocabulary words. The meaning of unfamiliar words can be accessed by a single tap. The complete vocabulary list is available in the Glossary.
The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the most famous novels in English—but how many readers ever notice how Conan Doyle achieves his literary masterpiece of suspense and mystery?
