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...?nd 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. Performed by Fred Berman

Professional reviews

"Fred Berman embraces the energetic mystery-solving of neighborhood hero Joe Sherlock. Berman needs this energy as Keane's short stories are filled with eccentric characters and nonstop action as the goofy boy sleuth tracks the evil that lurks in his neighbor Mr. Asher's toolshed, recovers his lost, gout-stricken dad, and tries to stop Mr. Asher's mother from filling the air with her flatulent "air biscuits." And that's only the first mystery. Berman goes on with the mildly disgusting humor that 7-10-year-olds love in the production's two other whodunits, as Joe searches for a missing diamond and the cause of an unusual amount of dog poop.
