Sheerluck Holmes and The Case of the Missing Friend by Karen Poth

ISBN: 9780310741718
Publisher's Synopsis:
A Lesson on the Golden Rule
In the newest addition to the VeggieTales I Can Read series, Sheerluck Holmes and the Case of the Missing Friend, our Veggie friend Sniffy’s feelings are hurt, and he disappears from the Pizza Place. His friends are worried and ask Sheerluck and Dr. Watson for help finding him. Will they find Sniffy before the hounds of Baker Street do? And will Sniffy ever forgive his friends for treating him poorly?

MrsK's Review:
Veggie Tales, Veggie Tales, Veggie Tales... when a veggie tale book is shared... well we all have to sing. So once again Sheerluck Holmes and Bobby Watson are called in to solve the case. Through foggy London streets, they arrive at the Pizza Place and there are many who appear to be guilty in hurting the feelings of Sniffy.  With some quick thinking, Bobby Watson turns out the lights...

Well I do not spoil any book's ending, but I will say that the characters are delightful... the setting provides much to talk about once you've read the tale... and as in every Veggie Tale the moral is "spot on" for all of our younger listeners. The little miss in our home listened, then wanted it read again, and of course said, "Read it again, read it again." Finally, she asked, "Why would they hurt Sniffy's feelings?" Awe and there is the teachable moment that always brings out the best of our Veggie Tale friends.

Enjoy this great new opportunity for family time, fun, and Veggie Tale singing,

So much fun to read, to discuss, to re-read!
