    This is the second book I read in the Detective Gordon series, and again I was delighted of spending some time with this wonderfully sweet characters. A cozy mystery for kids between 8 and 10 years old, with beautiful things to learn about friendship, generosity, and community sense. ...

    After the last case that Detective Gordon and Detective Buffy solved, Detective Gordon has taken a very long vacation, perhaps even retired. In this book, Detective Buffy has been awakened for several nights by something making noises outside the Police Station and she wants to see if ...

    I am sad to say that this is the last book in the Detective Gordon series. I've quite enjoyed this series. Both Detective Gordon and his Police Chief Assistant Buffy are endearing characters who work hard to serve the animals in the forest, even when they are scared. Currently, Gordon ...

    Police Chief Buffy is the new mouse in charge at the police station since Detective Gordon retired. While sleeping one night, she hears a mysterious scrabbling sound in the police station and becomes frightened. However, when she goes to investigate she finds no one is there. After ano...

    Children's chapter book series about a frog and mouse police force in the forest. A little too obvious with lessons and morals. Translated from the original Swedish. This third series installment isn't as good as the second book, A Complicated Case, for two reasons. The warmth of th...

    The gentlest, mildest introduction to mysteries. The police have to help each other to stamp reports, they have important hats and keep their gun locked up (it can NEVER be unlocked) and have cakes for every meal. It wasn't exactly action-packed for ME, but it would be great to rea...

    Detective Buffy calls Detective Gordon out of retirement just in time to help find two missing children. Soon the whole forest is involved in the search. Filled with lush illustrations and gentle lessons about compassion, friendship, teamwork and how to resolve conflict. I've really en...

    'Detective Gordon: A Case in Any Case' by Ulf Nilsson with illustrations by Gitte Spee is the third and final book in this series from Sweden. This is a charming and sweet series for young readers or storytime. Detective Gordon has turned things over to Detective Buffy. The gun and ...

    A Touching and Instructive Story About Oldtimers and Young Turks I think the Detective Gordon books are fascinating. They hardly ever address any of the topics or interests or subjects of other books aimed at a similar reading demo. They are quiet and contemplative books that take o...

    Summary : Detective Gordon is brought out of retirement by young Detective Buffy when strange noises are heard outside the station and two kindergarten students are reported missing during a school field trip. The work-hungry frog and anxious mouse-in-command detectives may be a perfec...

    Kla-dunk! The delights of two mysteries to solve for hard-case detectives - one is zero years old but wise for her age and the other is a toad. This book is funny, philosophical, and runs the gamut of emotions from jealousy, embarrassment, anger and how to deal with it, to tension, bra...

    I very much enjoyed this sweet little book about two detectives, an old frog and a young mouse, and the cases they solve together. It's the 3rd in a series but I read this one first without any trouble. Mysterious nighttime scrabbling and two missing small animals form the mysteries...

    I received this ARC from Netgalley for an honest review. A great story about two police officers who work in the forest. With Gordon on vacation, Buffy is all alone to solve the great cases on her own. When she starts to become scared and worried about all of the noises that she hears...

    I am sad to say that this is the last book in the Detective Gordon series. I've quite enjoyed this series. Both Detective Gordon and his Police Chief Assistant Buffy are endearing characters who work hard to serve the animals in the forest, even when they are scared. Currently, Gordon ...

    Children's chapter book series about a frog and mouse police force in the forest. A little too obvious with lessons and morals. Translated from the original Swedish. This third series installment isn't as good as the second book, A Complicated Case, for two reasons. The warmth of th...

    The gentlest, mildest introduction to mysteries. The police have to help each other to stamp reports, they have important hats and keep their gun locked up (it can NEVER be unlocked) and have cakes for every meal. It wasn't exactly action-packed for ME, but it would be great to rea...

    Detective Buffy calls Detective Gordon out of retirement just in time to help find two missing children. Soon the whole forest is involved in the search. Filled with lush illustrations and gentle lessons about compassion, friendship, teamwork and how to resolve conflict. I've really en...

    A Touching and Instructive Story About Oldtimers and Young Turks I think the Detective Gordon books are fascinating. They hardly ever address any of the topics or interests or subjects of other books aimed at a similar reading demo. They are quiet and contemplative books that take o...

    Kla-dunk! The delights of two mysteries to solve for hard-case detectives - one is zero years old but wise for her age and the other is a toad. This book is funny, philosophical, and runs the gamut of emotions from jealousy, embarrassment, anger and how to deal with it, to tension, bra...

    I very much enjoyed this sweet little book about two detectives, an old frog and a young mouse, and the cases they solve together. It's the 3rd in a series but I read this one first without any trouble. Mysterious nighttime scrabbling and two missing small animals form the mysteries...

    EM said to give it 5 stars! Luke (who read some) was not a fan, I thought it was cute! ...

    I never logged this. It was probably up to month before this date. The whole series is pretty simplistic, but sweet. I had read this one out of order so now it makes more sense. ...
