Clever and filled with puns and linguistic jokes (an accident-prone researcher named Woeps, for example), this is a book where the mystery definitely takes a back seat to the way the story is told. It was fast and fun to read, and had a clever resolution, a nice enjoyable little 'dessert' book, but not something I'd want a steady diet of.

Hilariously funny. The mystery is secondary to the witty dialogue.

Interesting murder mystery for those who like an academic twist. The suspects are all linguists in a research facility/daycare center. They use the children in the center as subjects for their research. As a former professor, I especially liked the nutty, idiosyncratic group of scholars; I recognized many of them. They are probably not the best bunch to have surrounding a group of toddlers, but still a delightful mix where murder is concerned.
