A Caper in Fabel, the True Story of Humpty Dumpty by Alexander Anderson

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the Kings horses and all the Kings men couldnt put Humpty together again. We always assumed this rhyme to be true, but iguana Detective Nathaniel Spade is being led to believe otherwise. When he receives a tip suggesting that Humpty was pushed, the chase begins! With the assistance of his partner Virgil, who happens to be a sea turtle, they travel all through the land of Fabel tracking down possible suspects. He meets everyone from Miss Virginia Muffet to Old King Cole, as well as the mysterious Riding Hood. Join Detective Spade on his perilous and exciting journey to bring justice to the land of Fabel.
A Caper in Fabel was a fun and enjoyable read. Most of this tale was simple and easy to read but sometimes the vocabulary became a bit harder to understand. At times it seemed as if it was written more as an informative piece and not a story.  For the most part, this book was an entertaining one. Any fans of The Sisters Grimm or Chet Gecko books will enjoy this playful read!
