When two Evert and Karen go missing from their kindergarten class, Gordon and Buffy must work together to find them. The duo investigates the case of the missing children, seeking the help of the young classmates as they try to come up with an idea of where the children might have gone. They put together a search team with all the animals in the forest. Every animal is needed just in case Evert and Karen are hungry, cold, or tired or if the animals need a rope, ladder, or a boat to rescue them.
A Case in Any Case is the third and final book of the Detective Gordon series. This story has beautiful and colorful illustrations to portray the story and illuminate the clues as Gordon and Buffy try to find out where Evert and Karen have gone missing. At one point in the story, Buffy and Gordon have to use their “secret language” so that they don’t worry the children. This story teaches the principle of friendship, kindness, and teamwork. A delightful read for young readers and adults alike.
