Barry Baskerville, Boy Detective (and Sherlock Holmes wanna-be) returns in his fourth adventure. He continues to annoy his schoolmates and teachers with his tricky questions (whose answers depend on logic and careful deduction) and prowls or make that patrols his town, ever on guard for crime. Petty criminals should fear him. His neighbors are often delighted they have a crime-fighter as clever as Barry in their midst. Even the local police appreciate his detective skills.
Barry is a spunky kid young readers will enjoy getting to know through his exploits. It may even inspire them to try a little detecting on their own.
I always enjoy his escapades. Usually I am able to correctly solve the puzzles he inflicts upon his less observant friends and family but this time he stumped me completely! I didn’t even get one solution correct.
