This book opens with Jabez Wilson, a pawnbroker with unique blazing red hair, visiting Sherlock Holmes to ask for help about a mysterious job he and Wilson had been working. For the simple task of copying parts of a book for a few hours each day, Wilson was paid an amount by a Red-headed League; but suddenly, the Red-headed League disappeared.
Holmes investigated and concluded that Vincent Spaulding, who had just recently begun working as an assistant at Wilson's shop and had shown Wilson the Red-headed League's advertisement in a newspaper, is the infamous criminal, John Clay. He figures out Clay had been using the scam of the Red-Headed League to keep Wilson out of his shop so that Clay, along with some accomplice, could dig a tunnel to the vault of a neighboring bank.
Along with a bank manager and a police chief, Holmes sets up an ambush in the bank vault and captures the criminals.

This book begins with Heidi's aunt taking her to live with her grandfather. As time flew quickly, her aunt returned and said that she found a place for her to live. She managed to trick Heidi and got away. They arrived at a location named Frankfurt. Soon, Heidi became homesick and started opening the front door in her sleep, frightening the family she was living with. After a while, a man noticed that Heidi had been acting strangely and asked what was wrong. Heidi explained that she missed the mountains and wanted to go home. The man knew right away that she was the one opening the door. They decided to send her back home the next day, where her heart yearned for. For a long time, I really liked this book. My favorite character is Heidi. She is so cute and funny!
