WHOBERT WHOVER by Jason Gallaher

- A Story That's Sure To Make Kids Hoot With Laughter -

Whobert Whover classifies himself as a detective that tries to keep “his neck of the woods safe.” While checking out the woods he comes upon Perry the possum . . . lying very still. So what’s a detective to do but claim, 
“Poor Perry! I will find out who, who done it!” 
So looking for clues is a start since a good detective always finds a clue. And a good detective finds an eyewitness and follows the getaway trail. Will Whobert Whoever succeed, or is it possible he’s overlooking a few things?

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me:

What I Liked Most:
The illustrations are extremely cute. In fact, to really appreciate them I think you’ll need to read this book several times to see all the details. Kids will love to look for the things Whobert seems to be overlooking. But this detective owl never quits, no matter the evidence (or lack of it), the overlooked clues, and the suspects’ denials. 

I would rate this book high on my list of favorites.
