    One thought on “Detective Gordon: The First Case”

    1. What a charming piece of Scandinavian crime fiction for children! I love it when animals have professions. Bonus points b/c the crime fighting team is a young spunky mouse and an old toad who really would rather be drinking tea and eating his night cakes.

    2. 3.5 sterren. Dit was een leuk boekje!Ik vond alleen onze inspecteur erg saai en ik had veel meer verwacht van de geweldige inspecteur. Natuurlijk, hij is wat ouder, hij is wat ingezakter, maar ik vond het gewoon jammer hoe hij was. In plaats van er echt voor te gaan, zat hij telkens te denken aan eten, of thee, of warmte. En hij had wel wat goede momenten, momenten waar ik zag dat hij inderdaad misschien ooit eens een geweldige inspecteur was, die er echt voor ging. Ik hoop dat wij die verhalen [...]

    7. I just happened upon this children's book because I love a mysteryrally adult mysteries. However, on my way out of the library while walking past the children's section, my eyes spotted it, and I'm so glad they did. This book was wonderful! Written with sensitivity and humor that both children, and dare I say, adults, will enjoy reading. There's so many life lessons being taught within the 90 pages of this book, I don't know where to begin. Not wanting to spoil the plot or ending, let's just say [...]

    11. Don't be fooled by the small size of this book or the extra white space on the pages, this book packs a powerful philosophical punch. How should crimes be punished? What is the role of prison? Quite a lot of conversations that could arise.Kids so often see the world in black and white, good guys and bad guys. This one is an age appropriate way to help them see more grey.And also make them hungry for teacakes.

    19. Snow Falling In A Midnight ForestFor a moment just stop thinking what you're thinking about this book. This is an early reader mystery, but it's not just that. This is an animal-detective adventure, but it's not just that. This is a Harold-and-Maude buddy comedy, but it's not just that. This is loaded with expressive, pretty pastel drawings, but it's more than just that. Think of "Wind in the Willows" meets "Columbo" meets "Crime and Punishment", as related, while you sip cocoa, by your coolest, [...]
