Every Rhyme Masks a Crime! Amateur sleuth Little Miss Muffet is back exposing crime and cover-ups and filling in all the missing bits of those confusingly incomplete rhymes. Baaa Baa Black Sheep is suspicious. Why is Farmer Fred giving all her precious black wool away? Is Baaa Baa being fleeced? Will Baaa Baa and Little Miss Muffet solve the mystery before it’s too late? And how did Little Bo Peep get mixed up in all this? It all sounds a bit mysterious… A riotous reimagining of our popular nursery rhymes.
