Description

Cardigan the moose was new in town. When Mrs. Brown’s fresh apple pie goes missing, witnesses come forward to place Cardigan at the scene of the crime. Finding himself on trial, Cardigan insists to judge and jury that he didn’t take the pie — he just wanted to smell it. No one believes him. But despite his assurances, he can’t explain what happened to the pie, either . . . or can he?

Praise For The Trial of Cardigan Jones

Egan's animal characters have offbeat dignity that makes them special and his portrayal of a moose unfairly blamed will hit home with young audiences.
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

...This may have some potential as a discussion starter on the idea of "innocent until proven guilty." Kirkus Reviews

Cardigan Jones puts a smile on trial by jury and just might teach young readers ... about jumping to conclusions.
School Library Journal

Grown-ups may detect a "Law and Order" spoof at work, but youngsters should find much food for thought.
