comic book cover

In this 22-page one-shot, private detectives Oliver Winchester and Guster Nabu investigate an attack on Shrewise Peete, a local critter. The humans, Amber and Joe, take Ollie and Gus out to the neighborhood where they can talk to informants and friends to gather information about this crime. They question a chipmunk, a squirrel, a blue jay, and the fairies in the garden. Why would this little shrew have any enemies?

The Winchester-Nabu team discovers that they made a big mistake! Can they fix it in time for the shrew to regain her health?
