Did you ever wonder what happened after Humpty Dumpty’s great fall”? Well, it seems that after the failure of the king’s horses and men, the grief-stricken king enlists the help of the community to try to piece the egghead back together. But the efforts of the doctor, baker, and tailor are all in vain. They cannot put Humpty together again. So Norma Jean Foote, the king’s trusty servant, picks up the pieces and sets off on a project that memorializes the fallen Humpty Dumpty and unites the grieving kingdom.
In this clever tribute to Humpty Dumpty, Ziefert blends the traditional rhyme with new characters and a witty, heartfelt ode for the town’s most treasured member.
