Agatha Christie's Great Detectives Poirot and Marple
« on: July 12, 2007, 02:05:16 PM »

Apparently the Japanese love Agatha Christie, and they've done a cartoon adaptation.  I've been assured by an anime/Christie fan that the series does follow the major plot points, so it could act as a Cliff's Notes guide or survey course on the Poirot and Marple novels.

What impressed me most was how they improved the story by adding a young girl with a pet duck.

Incidentally, does everybody know about the fine Japanese site--available in English--called "The  Gumshoe Site"?  Unfortunately, I couldn't find (maybe I didn't look long enough?) even more details about these anime Christie stories, but there's other interesting stuff there. The URL

Books by Byron and Kay McAllister can most easily be obtained as e-books or in print from the publisher at http://www.writewordsinc.com/ For "Undercover Nudist," the print version is an improved version of the ebook version. The others are the same in both formats.
