Cover: Detective Gordon: A Complicated Case

In their second case, Detective Gordon (an elderly toad) and Police Assistant Buffy (a young mouse) investigates who has been saying ‘nasty things’ to fellow forest creatures. As before, the friends’ application of the law is just. Humor and affection in the text and illustrations (loose black line drawings with washes of warm color) make for a thoughtful but light-handed exploration of bullying.
