Johnson, Herbie. Herbie Johnson is a boy in the big city whose life regularly brings him into contact with a variety of crimes and criminals, all of whom he captures or assists the police in capturing. It helps that Herbie is extra-observant–he’s the boy “whose eyes are always open.” Johnson appears in stories with titles like “Subway Cowboy,” “Blind Man’s Dog,” and “Carrier Pigeon.”
