Joe Sherlock is another in the honorable list of kid detectives for early readers. A few pages in I was concerned because it looked like he might just be a standard doofus, and this might be another fart and booger fest. I am the author of the Joe Sherlock: Kid Detective series and the Monster School: I Can Read series. My picture books include Sloppy Joe, Bobby Bramble Loses His Brain and Daddy Adventure Day. Next year, Knopf/Random House is releasing my new picture book, Who Wants a Tortoise?, illustrated by K. G. Campbell.

Well, Sherlock also happens to be the name of the greatest detective who ever looked through a magnifying glass: Mr. Sherlock Holmes. And just like the great Mr. Holmes, I was born with a natural gift for solving mysteries. It may sound weird, but while most kids my age are busy doing homework, playing soccer, or scooping out their ear wax with paper clips, I stay busy preparing myself for a life of mystery solving. But no amount of movie watching could have prepared me for the Case of the Haunted Toolshed.

this was a very funny book - at first chapter, my grandson felt that it would frighten him too much too sleep (there is mention of ghosts & a haunting). I explained to him that there would not be anything really frightening in a book meant for his age level - because, up to chapter 1 - it was hilarious and as I was reading it out loud, my husband was also enjoying it. I think that my eight yr old grandson could actually have read this to himself; as he agreed to continue w/ the story, at the end of ever chapter, I asked, should we stop here, he kept saying no until we had read the entire book. I am sold on this funny series that gives youngsters credit for having brains enough to figure things out and make the world right again, offers an example that young people can get jobs, and, as having grown up in a fairly large family,and have numerous close friends who also grew up in large families, I enjoyed the family dynamics (one sibling is usually clueless and mean, there is often a partnership between two or 3 of the siblings) evident in the story and I believe children will be able to relate to them. The ghost turned out to be harmless and did not frighten him enough to make him loose sleep; he laughed (belly laugh) about the farting,(I mentioned he is a grandSON, right?) and i will be buying more in this series.

I thought I would introduce my 9 year old to Sherlock-type mysteries since we love BBC's Sherlock, and I love Doyle's stories. As he was reading he would start laughing at certain parts. Anytime a book can make you laugh out loud (at any age), it is a thing of beauty. I can't wait until he is old enough to tackle Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, but until then, Joe Sherlock will greatly entertain him.

My daughter loves this series. Any book that is read multiple times by my kids is a winner to me.

I read this book to my class each year during our mystery unit. It's a short chapter book that girls and boys both will like.

Nice easy read that both my sons have enjoyed over the years. Wish there were more in the series. :(

I read this whole book and what I loved about was the mystery I liked that the Edward the orangutans came out of nowhere!
The book is interesting and brings the reader into the book. The flow of the book makes the reader more excited to read more.
