Book Review: The Third Pig Detective Agency by Bob Burke

The Pig that built his house of brick lived to fight another day when the wolf tried to huff, puff, and blow his house down.  And after a while he turned detective!  The first of a delightful series by Bob Burke entwines characters from fables and fairy stories into a narration in film noir style, which is what attracted me to it in the first place, since my fourth book is voiced in the same style.

I found the tale engaging, the crime clever, the solution ingenious but was a little worn out by the continual introduction of yet more characters, some of which seemed to be there for little purpose other than to be clever.  But I enjoyed it, and will look out for the next crime in the series.
