the Freaky Joe Club

Those are the rules, set down by Freaky Joe himself in the big red book, slightly chewed on one corner and wrapped in a locked bicycle chain. The newest chapter of the Freaky Joe Club consists of Conor, Timmy, and Jack, and their mission is to solve crimes and fight evil in Ship's Cove, Texas -- if they can only convince anyone that there is evil in Ship's Cove.
When bicycles start disappearing all over Ship's Cove, the Freaky Joe Club has its first case. Why would anyone steal a bunch of bicycles? How can a crime buster be taken seriously if he has to ride a pink Magical Baby Katie bicycle? And most of all,...

About the Author:

John Manders uses an old master's technique of layering colored glazes over a monochromatic underpainting and does extensive research for many of his projects. He and his wife, Lisa, live with two dogs and a parrot in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4–This first title in this series introduces the club's three members: Conor (The Condor), Jack (Chase William), and Timmy (Jimbo). The Condor documents their adventures and seems to know all about the club and its rules, although he shares them in a pretty piecemeal manner. When Jimbo's bike is stolen, the boys set off to solve their first mystery. Although this book couldn't be called a literary gem, the three friends are distinct personalities who pal around in a believable way. The satellite characters of Conor's mom, dog, little sister, and neighborhood security guard provide excellent foils for their exploits. The Condor observes that the adults are caring if sometimes inept. Although the concluding letter to readers from the author is a tad coy, it's hard to argue with advice to drink milk and read a lot of books.–Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE
