Picture Books

After the fall, Humpty Dumpty is a broken egg. Life is tough: he's so afraid of heights, he can't even bear to climb onto his bed, or reach his favourite cereal on the top shelf at the supermarket. But one day, fuelled by his passion for bird-watching, he decides to conquer his fears and something amazing happens...


'A tender, wryly funny look at trauma and recovery' GUARDIAN


Product Information

'Santat applies his considerable talent for intertwining visual and textual, whimsy and gravity to his consideration of trauma and the oft-overlooked importance of self-determined recovery ... A validating and breathtaking next chapter of a Mother Goose favorite.' - Kirkus
