Sherman Crunchley Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sherman Crunchley is in line to become chief of police when his father retires. The problem is, Sherman doesn't like being a police officer. He has a hard time saying no to anyone-crooks, his boss, and especially his dad. Sherman turns to self-help books, videos, and even hypnosis to learn how to refuse, but nothing works. On the day of his father's retirement party, Sherman finally comes up with a solution, and the party guests help him convey a loud and clear message. Readers will tip their hats at the resourceful way Sherman finds happiness in this silly, thoroughly satisfying story about being true to oneself.

Illustrated by Tim Bowers.
