Synopsis

What’s that smell in the Dell? It comes from a cheese, a great big cheese, a smelly, scrumptious cheese, if you please, made from the milk of a cantankerous cow—oh, wow! The one-horned, two-eared, three-legged Cowabunga!

But the Cowabunga cheese has gone missing, and Sherlock Bones is on the case! That brainy bloodhound must use all five of his senses to track down the thief.

Children will have fun following the clues in this roll-off-your-tongue read-aloud inspired by the popular children’s song “The Farmer in the Dell” and illustrated with Dorothy Donohue’s lively signature cut-paper artwork.
