About the Author
Jason June has been in love with love for as long as he can remember. When not writing, he’s sending Valentine’s cards to his husband, eating candy hears, and officiating weddings. Jason June is the author of Whobert Whover, Owl Detective and Porcupine Cupid.
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.
"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
