This was my first Jasper Fforde, and whilst it was a fun read, with plenty of laughs, I’m not rushing to the next in the series. The retold fairytales that kept cropping up lost their effect after a while, and even started to irritate. How many books are in this series? It’s difficult to justify more than a couple of titles, but I know there are lots of readers who can’t wait for the next Nursery Crime novel. I’m not one of them.
