Heads Up, T.A.A. Fans,

After 3 Heralding Cases Together, Zengo, O'Malley (and new face Cooper) are going out with a SPLASH-In the 4th and FINAL book in the "Platypus Police Squad" series by "Lunch Ladies" author,  Jarrett J. Krosoczka from Walden Pond Press! (A Division of +HarperCollins Publishers)

Your lit. rat is both psyched, yet sad to bid farewell to a series on par with Michael Hoeye's "Hermux Tantamoq Adventure" series, which I'm always BEGGING people to read, and a hardcore #Hermux  fan like me don't say that lightly.

As an author myself, I know the bittersweet feeling of saying goodbye to characters we've lived with, loved, and at time frustrated by for YEARS (Sometimes even DECADES) before anyone outside our beta-readers, editors and illustrators ever read about them!
I had to make this promo to spread the word.

If you haven't been privy to the series yet, 

T.A.A.'s review of Books 1-3 are coming soon.

If you can't wait, Books 1-3 are available in print and ebook editions.

Also, Books 1-3 are also available in unabridged audio editions (Narrated by Johnny Heller) which you can hear samples of here-
