Sherlock Sam and the Obento Bonanza in Tokyo (book 9)
Illustrated by drewscape
Inspector Lestrade and Interpol have a mystery that only the Supper Club can unravel. Sherlock Sam, Watson and their friends have to travel to Tokyo, Japan, and eat their way through a baffling series of clues before they can solve the tasty crime! Will Sherlock Sam prevail? Or will everything get lost in translation, leaving our intrepid detectives cold and hungry?
"In this funny and fast paced detective story, Sherlock Sam and the Supper Club take readers to the best places in Tokyo. Curiosity and suspense keep rising in each chapter, as they follow clues to track down the missing animator Mona Sumi. The humor and camaraderie of the children, the robots and the lovable parents are reassuring, and makes you wish you could be part of the group in their next adventure."
—Naomi Kojima, Japanese author and illustrator of The Alphabet Picture Book and Singing Shijimi Clams
“Definitely a middle-grade series that I would unreservedly recommend to teachers, parents and fellow bibliogeeks. Science!”
—Dr Myra Garces-Bacsal, National Institute of Education
