About the Detective Gordon series:

Detective Gordon is a friendly, philosophical, humorous, and thoughtful detective series following the adventures of the rather tired—and often hungry—Detective Gordon and his chirpy assistant, Buffy.

Detective Gordon is something of a humanist, and keeps an eye out for the weaker inhabitants of his woods.  The books are full of warm, witty wisdom from one of Sweden’s foremost children’s authors, Ulf Nilsson.  The text is affectionately and generously illustrated in watercolor and pencil by acclaimed Dutch illustrator, Gitte Spee.  This is a detective series with depth—ideal for elementary school, perfect for reading alone, wonderful for reading aloud.
