What happened to Perry the Possum? Whobert Whover, Owl Detective, is on the case!

And what if the culprit is closer to home than Whobert expects?
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : Author Jason Gallaher has written such a fun ” who-dun-it” story to engage young readers. Whobert the owl stumbles across a seemingly dead Perry the possum. But who did him in? It’s Whobert to the rescue as he goes in search of a potential killer in his neck of the woods. I love all the twists and turns this detective tale takes until we arrive at the surprise ending. Illustrator Jess Pauwels’ cute artwork is also lovely to see. A nice addition to any library!
