Sherlock Chick's First Case

Sherlock Chick's First Case. Robert M. Quackenbush. 1986/2019. 48 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Sherlock Chick's first case began on the day he was born. At once, Emma Hen and Harvey Rooster knew that he was special. With that, his proud parents named him Sherlock. His first words were, "Are you in need of a detective?"

Premise/plot: Sherlock Chick tackles his first case in this newly republished picture book by Robert Quackenbush. Someone has taken the CORN?!?! Can Sherlock follow the clues and solve the mystery?!

My thoughts: I really LOVED this one. It was super fun. I loved the problem-solving at the end of the book. It was a hoot.
