The book is a fantasy about animals, containing a lot of trivia, facts, fantasy, and a myriad of pun aspects of the animals. What might happen if, after the destruction of the human race, animals took over? This is a tale about the malicious murder of a few animals and the resulting chase, arrest, and prosecution of the perpetrators. It is told by an elephant to his grand calves. The story covers the murder and the investigation by Chief Inspector Bobby Bloodhound and his renowned team of detectives. They investigate the ant colonies, the beehives, the ocean, the bird sanctuary, the farm, and the wild jungle. There is a chase, a capture, and a court case to follow. Many human comparisons can be made from the behavior and actions of the animals involved.
