With unspeakable phobias, a need to sleep with three night-lights, and a horrible allergy to peanut butter, Joe Sherlock is not your typical neighborhood hero. But fear not, Joe Sherlock always cracks the case . . . and just in time for dinner.

Case #000001: The Haunted Toolshed

Cakes vanishing into thin air? Mailboxes disappearing without a trace? Evil lurks in Mr. Asher's toolshed? Joe Sherlock must investigate the strange and unexplained events that are happening on Baker Street after dark. Even though a cold tingle of terror gallops down his spine like a herd of wild gophers, Joe is determined to solve the case and have his bundt cake, too.

Case #000002: The Neighborhood Stink

Can a goofy kid detective overcome a sudden and strong gag reflex? Will he stop stepping in the evidence? And will he solve the case in time for dinner? On a carpetlike lawn in a gated yard sit mysterious, smelly piles of dog poop. Mrs. Fefferland puts Joe Sherlock on the case to sniff out the culprit. But even Sherlock Holmes never encountered a case as baffling or stomach-churning as this.

Case #000003: The Missing Monkey-Eye Diamond

Why has a ring with a diamond the size of a monkey's eye suddenly disappeared? Will it be found before the wedding party turns into an angry mob? Armed with only a box of Barf Blockers, a clip-on tie, and his extraordinary sleuthing skills, Joe Sherlock is in a race against time-and a very sensitive stomach.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Berman handily pulls off a difficult feat-sounding youthful and not too affected-as the voice of a fourth-grade detective. Joe Sherlock, a timid kid with a nose (but often not the stomach) for mysteries, has a fond respect for his namesake, Sherlock Holmes. With a blend of mild suspense, universal kid dynamics and a good dose of potty humor, Keane concocts a recipe likely to hook mystery lovers and the Captain Underpants crowd. His pesky but knowledgeable little sister (along with her Girl Chat sleepover backpack and walkie-talkie) assist Sherlock as he works his way through three neighborhood cases-on Baker Street, of course-in this introductory collection: Case #1: The Haunted Toolshed; Case #2: The Neighborhood Stink and Case #3: The Missing Monkey-Eye Diamond. Listeners will likely have a good laugh trailing clues with Berman's interpretation of this affable, sometimes silly sleuth. Ages 7-10. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
