My nursery rhyme? Hey Diddle, Diddle.
I know, how do you make a dark YA story where the characters are a laughing dog, a moon-jumping cow, and a fiddle-playing cat? The only hint I'll give you is that involves ancient Egyptian mythology in a modern-day setting. Other than that, you're just going to have to wait and see.
