"Pauwels' digital forest scenes full of tiny onlookers such as bees, spiders, and worms complement Gallaher's witty wordplay...A cracking whooooo-dunit." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Gallaher’s whodunit is full of puns and misunderstandings that might elicit some giggles from a storytime audience as they talk back to the befuddled detective...[Pauwels'] exasperated characters have comical expressions that tell the real story. The action is established on the title page; readers may want to go back to the beginning to search the cartoonish illustrations for more clues that Whobert missed. VERDICT Recommended for group and one-on-one sharing." (School Library Journal)
"Pauwels’ loose-lined pictures feature characters that jump off the page. Kids will laugh at both Whobert’s obtuseness and Perry’s stealth maneuvers in the background. A little twist at the end puts a bow on the package." — Ilene Cooper (Booklist)
About the Author
Jason Gallaher is a children’s book writer who fell in love with detective work while watching episodes of Blue’s Clues. He solved the mystery of what to do when he grew up and became an author when he learned being a merman is impossible (at least for now). Jason lives in Austin, Texas, with his Pomeranian, Pom Brokaw, who is a super sleuth when it comes to finding treats. Visit Jason online at JasonGallaher.com.
Jess Pauwels lives in Brussels, Belgium, so she can have the best French fries, the darkest chocolate, and the crunchiest Speculoos in the entire world. With her artist’s cap on eight months a year, she mostly draws picture books and magazines stories. She loves caffeine, colored pencils, traveling, and documentaries about monkeys.

The first read through I thought "cute!"
The second time, I thought "clever."
The third time, I thought, "this is hysterical!"
The characters are great. Whobert is a lovable, yet not-so-quick detective and Possum's expressions are awesome. There's a fun refrain kids will latch onto.
The illustrations are fantastic and there are fun hidden tidbits in them. I hope Whobert will return again.
Fantastic read aloud. My kids are 4 and 8. Both of them enjoyed this story! As did I!
