Product description

Review

“Santat gives full weight to the power of fear, which can daunt anyone who has been injured, before showing Humpty Dumpty’s eventual triumph with an inventive ending that is nothing short of exhilarating.” ―Wall Street Journal

“I was so genuinely surprised by the book's conclusion that I won't spoil it. It's always gratifying to see how an artist can turn even the most familiar tale into something new.” ―New York Times

“Dan Santat's hilariously touching story and magnificent illustrations give Humpty new life as he confronts his debilitating fear. The final twist in this totally original next chapter of a Mother Goose's classic offers a stunningly triumphant ending that will take your breath away.” ―NPR

“A validating and breathtaking next chapter of a Mother Goose favorite.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“More than a nursery rhyme remix, Santat’s story speaks boldly to the grip of fear and trauma, and to the exhilaration of mastering it.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The author gives wings to both his protagonist and his message about the importance of getting back up after a fall and the realization that recovering from a trauma takes time.” ―Booklist, starred review

Santat’s precise illustrations and sensitive text combine for more emotional depth than the typical nursery rhyme remix. A terrific redemptive read-aloud for storytime and classroom sharing.” ―School Library Journal, starred review

“Luminous.” ―Horn Book, starred review

“Authentically exhilarating.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“Instead of resting on his laurels, Dan Santat soars above them. I loved this!” ―Dav Pilkey, creator of the Captain Underpants series and The Paperboy (Caldecott Honor)
