He's readily available and willing to help his friends to solve mysteries.In this story, Billy, a fourth grade boy, is riding his bicycle home from school. He's had a great day, in part because he got a new baseball bat for his birthday, and used it to hit a home run during recess. Unfortunately, a gang of eighth graders is looking for a new bat. They see Billy go home, and notice the sparkle of his bat in the basket in the back of his bike. They give chase, and manage to steal the bat. All seems lost, until Billy is introduced to Sam, who takes on his case.
