Sniff Sniff What's the smell in the Dell? Well . . . 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 Shelock 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 signature cut-paper artwork. Music for the nursery song "The Farmer in the Dell" is included as back matter.
