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.
