Detective Gordon: The First Case by Ulf Nilsson

When the squirrel comes wailing into the police station complaining about stolen nuts, Detective Gordon has his first case.  There's not a lot of call for police action in the woods, but he's ready.  Now he has to decide what to do...

Gecko Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

This is a cute story that young ones will enjoy.  The detective is a frog.  He decides to watch the tree and see who is snitching the nuts.  He does catch somone but he's almost frozen and he has to beg the thief for help.  She does.  She's a small mouse who is starving.  She has no family or name.  So he names her, lets her eat the nut, and then hires her (room and board) as his assistant.

The illustrations are simple and very nice, the story line is fun, and they do find the thieves.  The solution is amusing.  This would be a good story to read a chapter from each night.  It won't be long before the child will be able to read it themselves.  Share this with your young one, they'll enjoy it.
