wilcox & griswold mysteries
Robin and Deborah's early reader series features two mouse detectives solving Dragnet-style mysteries on the farm. The animal puns are extra funny because of the narrator's dead-pan tone, so it was important to show the trappings of serious detective work in the front and back matter.
I played with trompe l'oeil to create a fun, distinctive design for the series.
