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.

  • 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 fourth 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.
