finalproblem:

Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House is one of the fanciest dollhouses in the world. The house has electricity, running water, and a library containing hundreds of tiny books.

One of the volumes in the library is How Watson Learned the Trick. Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the story into the tiny book by hand in 1922. It’s only 503 words long, but took up 34 pages.

It begins:

Watson had been watching his companion intently ever since he had sat down to the breakfast table. Holmes happened to look up and catch his eye.

“Well, Watson, what are you thinking about?” he asked.

“About you.”

“Me?”

“Yes, Holmes. I was thinking how superficial are these tricks of yours, and how wonderful it is that the public should continue to show interest in them.”
