rating: 4 of 5 stars
DI Jack Spratt is on the job in the Nursery Crimes Division. He's accompanied by Sergeant Mary Mary, and they are investigating the suspicious death of Humpty Dumpty. DI Spratt's department is in imminent danger of being disbanded due to his inability to get convictions for the 3 pigs accused of gruesomely murdering a wolf, and because he's responsible for the inadvertent death of at least one giant, although some say he killed more. Jasper Fforde's wacky sense of humor shines throughout this first installment of the Nursery Crimes series. If you've read his Thursday Next series, you will definitely enjoy this one.
