really liked it

Jack is an ordinary fellow who leaves his factory job to seek his fortune in the big city. What he finds in Toy City, however, is a smart-mouthed detective teddy bear named Eddie, famous nursery rhyme characters, dollies and tintoys and rubber policemen, a kindly old toymaker--and a serial killer.

Not for the faint of heart, chock full of naughty bits, off-color humor, and gratuitous violence, this novel is a hilarious satire of the hard-boiled detective novel. Both its premise and its language are quite clever, although there are moments when judicious editing would have improved it. Altogether I found it to be pretty adorable. (It helps that I love teddy bears.)

... oh, sheer delight! there's a sequel!
