Summary
Detective Inspector Jack Spratt and his newly assigned Detective Sergeant Mary Mary are members of Reading, England's soon-to-be-obsolete Nursery Crime Division. When the broken body of Humpty Stuyvesant Van Dumpty III (Humpty Dumpty) is found at the base of his favorite wall, foul play is suspected and the two are put on the case.
Critique
Clever and whimsical. Pun-filled, fun crime fiction. Fans of Fforde's Thursday Next will enjoy this first installment in his new Nursery Crime series. Highly recommend.
