“Barry Baskerville's Marvelous Memory” shows children how accurate observations, adequate repetition, and mnemonic techniques can enhance their memorization skills. The hero of the adventure is a precocious youngster named Barry Baskerville who has dreams of becoming a famous detective just like Sherlock Holmes.
Upon acquiring a new telescope, Barry teaches his classmates how to memorize the colors of the rainbow, the planets in our solar system, and other facts related to the field of astronomy. Barry even uses his remarkable memory to prevent his parents from being swindled by dishonest salespeople.
Dr. Kellogg is the author of four previous books dealing with Sherlock Holmes. He enjoys introducing readers to a world of enchantment that is inhabited by the great detective and his loyal colleague, Dr. John Watson.
