Sheerluck Holmes and the Case of the Missing Friend (I Can Read! / Big Idea Books / VeggieTales)Sheerluck Holmes and the Case of the Missing Friend by Karen Poth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
★: Didn't Like it
★★: It was Ok
★★★: Liked it
★★★★: Really liked it
★★★★★: It was amazing

Suggested Age:4-8 Genre:Children's Fiction

This was a very cute little book with a great moral. My four, seven and nine year old all enjoyed reading this book.  As usual, the Veggie Tales stories always make a great effort to teach the children a lesson a valuable lesson.   The colorful illustrations kept the attention of my four year old. She especially loved the “moustache.”

I would happily review any Veggie Tale book from Zondervan in the future.  Per personal preferences, I would rather see King James references given, even in children’s books. Thus, I feel it is important to note this for other parents.  Otherwise, this was a great read for the little ones!

The VeggieTales’ favorite characters are featured in the popular I Can Read brand. Perfect for ages 4-8.

Combining the proven success of the I Can Read! brand with the ever-popular Big Idea VeggieTales humor and characters, this Level One I Can Read will be another bestseller for the retailer and a best-loved book by the families that purchase them.

In 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?
