Sammy Scoop is a private investigator who faces the biggest challenge of his/her illustrious career with the sudden fall and disappearance of the jolly Humpty-Dumpty who apparently had no enemies.

Mistress Mary, Rip Van Winkle, Henny-Penny, Peter Rabbit and his sisters, Rapunzel and the Handsome Prince are among the many suspects called onto the carpet. A last-minute surprise appearance by two of fairy tales most celebrated characters, Mother Goose and Mother Hubbard, finally help Sammy and Alice nab the culprit!
