Fun book, but kind of lost on my 9 year old girl. I am sure the genre appeals to others, but she just couldn't connect with the plot or characters. ( )

I really enjoyed reading this with my nephew. The characters were recognizable and the story intrigued him to the very end. ( )

This was a cute mystery in the same vein as the Chet Gecko series, but involving familiar fantasy and nursery-rhyme characters with a twist. Try it on second/third/fourth grade boys or anyone who likes puns, adventure, and mysteries. ( )

This book was just...odd. I didn't find that story to be the least bit interesting. The characters weren't very original or easy to relate to. I'm not sure what the target book for this book would be, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. ( )

In New Yolk City, there lives a Hardboiled Detective who is the toughest egg around. Humpty Dumpty, Jr., has cracked every case that's come across his desk--except one, the one that made him become a detective. Putting that aside, he's won tons of awards for solving crimes, all the while putting himself at odds with the local police precinct.

One day, while reading the headlines in the paper, Humpty answers the phone, only to hear a scream before the line goes dead. He traces the call to the Pat-A-Cake Bakery, and rushes over there to check on his friend, Patty. He finds the lock to the door missing, just vanished, and baking supplies, ingredients, and recipe cards for Patty's magical cakes and pastries scattered all over the place.

While investigating, Humpty finds a piece of evidence--a playing card featuring the Jack of Hearts--on the ground. When he hears a noise from the storeroom and goes to investigate, an attacker leaps from the shadows, and Humpty is suddenly locked in a battle against someone who could possibly be Patty's kidnapper. Armed only with his magic egg-beater wand and his wits, Humpty wastes no time in finding out all he can to save Patty and crack this case.

His search will take him from Queens (to question the Knave of Hearts), to the sewers, to a highly charged final battle with an old foe on the outskirts of town.

The first book in a hilarious new series, created by three veteran authors and illustrators of children's books, this is one egg-citing set of books that will surely keep any younger or reluctant reader glued to the page to laugh as long as possible. ( )
