By Barwick, John; Illustrated by Atze, Dave
Nursery Crimes is a riotous reimagining of seven popular nursery rhymes. The central character in each story is Little Miss Muffet who is capable, smart, calm and practical. An amateur sleuth, she has many other hidden talents (locksmith, woodcutter, makeup artist) which serendip...itously come into play to help solve the crimes. In each story she teams up with the protagonist (Baaa Baa Black Sheep, Humpty Dumpty etc.) to solve a crime hinted at in the rhyme, but previously concealed. Other familiar nursery rhyme characters also make appearances, as well as some popular fairy story characters (who are often the villains of the piece). Each book reveals the cover-ups and complex web of crime and corruption in each story and finally unlocks the secrets to these much-loved, but confusingly incomplete, rhymes.Read more
