I actually bought this book purely for the title. It could be a total crap book, but the title is so rockin-awesome that it deserves four stars all on its own. The story itself is bizarre and a little unnerving. The main character, Jack, is established to be 13 years old, yet he drinks, has sex and is thrust into very adult situations. His personality is wildly erratic, fluctuating between a retarded 2 year old and a petulant old coot who has starred in too many pulp detective novels. However, Jack’s fluctuations are balanced by the interminably likable and savvy Eddie Bear, who is the heart of the operation. The action is swift, the mystery is sufficiently unpredictable (without being tripe) and the inside jokes are effectively sly. A satisfying, breezy slice of pulpy, campy fun!

I loved this book. Robert Rankin has a wonderful way of using childhood figures and putting them in adult situations. It is funny the way the react with each other. It was a very entertaining book.

I found this book both very funny and thought provoking. Robert Rankin reminds me of Terry Pratchett. The main characters are endearing and funny, but I will never look at toys the same way again. It is both dark and lightly funny. If you like surreal fantacy you will like this book.

"Synopsis" by , Toy Town — older, bigger, and certainly not wiser. The Old Rich, who have made their millions from the royalties on their world-famous nursery rhymes, are being murdered one by one. A psychopath is on the loose, and he must be stopped at any cost. It's a job for Toy Town's only detective — but he's missing, leaving only Eddie Bear, and his bestest friend Jack, to track down the mad killer.
