A warm and funny story from Detective Gordon’s forest about doing the right thing—and eating little cakes

Something’s going on in the forest: one of the animals is saying nasty things about the other forest creatures. But no one dares make a statement to the police. Who is the culprit? Detective Gordon and his assistant Buffy must investigate! But this is a complicated case. The two police officers split the workload: Buffy questions the suspects, while Gordon stays in
bed to think.
