"The Singular Affair of the Missing Ball" is the first adventure of a new, full color picture-book series featuring the world-famous canine detective, Sherlock Whippet. In this humorous tale, Sherlock Whippet is called to action by a hound who has lost his ball while playing a game of "fetch." The consulting detective quickly embarks upon solving the puzzling mystery with the aid of his companion and biographer, Dr. Dogson. Together, they follow the clues which lead them to one inescapable fact: the ball's disappearance must be the nefarious scheme of the evil Professor Murray R. Catty, the notorious cat burglar of London! Created by Emmy-nominated TV writer-producer John Semper Jr. ("Spider-Man: The Animated Series," "Jay Jay the Jet Plane" and "Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock"), this humorous parody of Victorian "penny-dreadful" dime novels is a treat for children of all ages as well as for adults who enjoy mysteries, Sherlock Holmes, dogs, cats, whippets and seriously absurd humor.
