The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde

The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde. This is the second book in the nursery crimes division series. How is a missing reporter, unexplained explosions and a psychotic gingerbread man connected? This is a lot of fun somewhat better than the first in the series. Much of the humor is pun based but it's still pretty good. Fforde has done a superb job of trying to bring nursery rhyme characters into a more modern setting without losing their inherent strangeness.

Highly recommended!

Is available through Abebooks.
