With retro flair and pun-filled prose, Scott Nash takes young readers on a comical adventure into the underbelly of the stuffed animal world.
He might look like nothin’ but a moth-eaten stuffed animal, but to the residents of Los Attic, this shabby rabbit is Tuff Fluff, Private Eye. No case is too tough for his fluffy mind . . . except maybe the case of Duckie’s missing brain. "Someone’s been playing foul with this fowl," the hard-boiled detective declares. But as he plunges into the dark and dusty places, showing his smarts —- and his soft side —- can he find enough clues to fit together the pieces of this peculiar puzzle?
Scott Nash is a designer and the illustrator of many children’s books, including SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DINOSAUR STOMP, MARTIAN ROCK, and THE BUGLIEST BUG, all written by Carol Diggory Shields. He lives on an island off the coast of Maine.
