Detective Gordon: The First Case

Detective GordonSquirrel’s precious nuts are being stolen and chief of police and chief of the forest, Detective Gordon (a very fat toad), is on the case, but he is not good at climbing trees or scouting out spiders. He would rather stay indoors eating chocolate cakes, drinking tea, stamping important papers, and philosophizing by a warm fire. He hires a small, fast, and clever young mouse named Buffy to be his assistant. Together they brilliantly solve the case. First in the Detective Gordon series, this sweet, full-color illustrated chapter book is a perfect read-aloud. An intricate Map of Detective Gordon’s Police District is included. mjw
