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.
Performed by Fred Berman

Dave Keane always loved monsters as a kid. Halloween was his favorite holiday and he dreamed of becoming a werewolf or a vampire when he grew up. Instead, he became a children's book writer and illustrator. Now he and his wife stay busy raising three little monsters of their own in Northern California.From AudioFile:
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.
