really liked it
Read in August, 2012 — I own a copy

"Sing a song of sixpence, a pocketful of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds backed in a pie.
When the pie was opened the birds began to sing.
Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?

The king was in his counting house, counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey,
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
When there came a little dickey bird and nipped off her nose."

It's another Agatha Christie book with a nursery rhyme theme. Having watched the TV Movie "A Pocket Full of Rye" ,starring Joan Hickson, some years ago, the story had nothing new for me but I still enjoyed the book very much.
