Detective Joe Sherlock is asked to find the missing Monkey Eye Diamond. This wedding ring has a diamond on it, the size of a monkey's eye. Joe and his sister Hailey don't have much time. They need to find it before the wedding and Joe's violin class.

Joe Sherlock and the Missing Monkey Eye Diamond is a great book. Joe is a funny character. The only time he isn't being lazy is when he has a mystery to solve. You will laugh in every chapter of this book and you will learn what a burf is. I liked this book because it is so funny and exciting that you never want to put it down.

I recommend this book to kids, especially boys, ages seven to ten. If you like funny mysteries you will love this book. I think if there was a competition for funniest book, Joe Sherlock and the Monkey Eye Diamond would win!
