This series is like the best kind of friendship: full of humour and delicious
cakes but giving space to think about the way we all are. We could all learn
from Detective Gordon.

Detective Gordon: A Case for Buffy


A warm and funny stand-alone story in the big-hearted series about Detective Gordon and his clever assistant Buffy.

Translated by Julia Marshall



  • Description

    In the forest is a police station. If an animal has a problem, they go there for help. On this chilly day there is a lot of activity—kla-dunk, kla-dunk—quiet and peaceful stamp work is taking place. But some small figures are creeping around outside…The final story in this big-hearted series is A Case for Buffy, which takes on the most important case of all—the search for Buffy’s mother.

      This one is a gentle little gem made all the more so by Gitte Spee’s whimsical illustrations.

      Read aloud or read alone, either way it’s a delight.

      gentle adventures, droll humor and delicious cakes at every turn.

    3. Kirkus Reviews (US)

      A gentle, mothercentric mystery that couldn’t be less threatening and a fine addition to
      the series.
