  • Description

    Something is going on in the forest. The animals are troubled. But no one dares make a statement to the police. Detective Gordon and his assistant Buffy must investigate!

    It is a complicated case. The two police officers split the workload: Buffy questions the suspects, while Gordon stays in bed to think. Who is the culprit?

    1. Otago Daily Times

      This is a gentle story about supportive friendships and the importance of protecting vulnerable creatures, and it comes with a strong anti-bullying message. It’s a nice introduction for children to how they can use their own moral compasses to decide what is good and bad behaviour.

    2. Diane Neylon, Youth Services Book Review (US)

      [I would] recommend this book for mature children that enjoy thoughtful books, programs that deal with bullies.
