The Crown Affair (Nursery-Rhyme Mysteries)
Author: Jeanie Franz Ransom
Illustrator: Stephen Axelsen
A Mother Goose mystery that will have readers wondering ‘Who done it?”. In this fast-paced, nursery-rhyme caper, hardboiled detective, Joe Dumpty does his darnedest to crack the case. It all started when Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Then, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. Or—as his brother Detective Joe Dumpty thinks—was he pushed? Suspects are aplenty (as are the puns) in this scrambled noir. Detective Dumpty works his way through the list of suspects, that hail from the pages of Mother Goose, in order to get to the bottom of what really happened to his brother.
This fractured fairy-tale mystery is full of whimsy and wordplay that will delight readers of all ages.
