The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde

The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde is a humorous mystery about the Nursery Crime Division.

Humpty Dumpty has been murdered and Jack Spratt has to find out who did it. Maybe a little heavier on puns then Fforde's other books but still enjoyable. Perhaps the most interesting part is that detectives who have their exploits published in history magazines gained fame, notoriety and convictions.

This is the first in a series. He deals with some of the same ideas in his Thursday Next series.


Is available through Abebooks.
