Whobert Whover, Owl Detective
by Jason Gallaher, illustrated by Jess Pauwels
Margaret K. Elderberry Books, 2017
A hilarious book where the words tell one story, while the graphics tell another!
Whobert Whover (so clever, for the adults) is on the case when he discovers possum lying awfully still. He looks for clues. He finds a feather and concludes Debbie the bird killed Possom. Debbie tries to explain to Whobert, who did it, but Whobert Whover doesn’t exactly listen and looks for more clues. A rollicking walk through the forest, where Whobert so busy he doesn’t even notice that Possom is up and running away. Everyone, including the young readers, knows who done it—except Whobert! The ending doubles readers over in laughter.
