Whether you’ve read any of Jasper Fforde’s other books or not, try this one. Imagine Chandler’s Philip Marlowe investigating the theft of Little Bo Peep’s sheep and you might be somewhere in the right ball park. Don’t worry that the nursery rhyme characters might be a little twee. Jack Spratt, detective and his side-kick Mary Mary are up for anything and they usually find it. I found this book very funny – a book you want to talk about and share with friends.
