Sherlock Holmes and his faithful sidekick, Dr. John Watson, are on a holiday in Europe, leaving their young nieces—Shirley Holmes and Jennie Watson—to keep an eye on the famous flat at 221B Baker Street.  Shirley Holmes and Jennie Watson are busy preparing for exams, when there's a knock on the door!

It's Sir Henry Baskerville, who's come to seek the assistance of the famous Sherlock Holmes. Sir Charles Baskerville has died mysteriously, the most recent victim of the Curse of the Baskervilles—a supernatural hound that haunts the murky moors of Devonshire. 

But wait, there's more! The young Sir Henry, the only surviving heir to the Baskerville legacy, has received a threat against his life! Something must be done! It's up to Shirley and Jennie to unravel this murderous mystery, even when confronted by the ravenous Hound itself!
