Someones stealing nuts from the forest and its up to Detective Gordon to catch the thief! Unfortunately, solving this crime means standing in the snow and waiting for a long time...If only he had an assistant - someone small, fast and clever - to help solve this terrible case. Then Detective Gordon would be able to go back to doing what he's best at: thinking, eating cakes, drinking tea, and stamping important papers.


"This involving, thought-provoking chapter book is utterly charming. Nilsson...creates endearing characters and a childlike sensibility through writing that is clean, precise, and amusing. "A wonderful choice for independent reading, particularly for kids who become accomplished readers early, the handsome first volume in the Detective Gordon series is a rewarding read-aloud as well." starred review, Booklist (US)
