An inspiring epilogue to the beloved nursery rhyme 'Humpty Dumpty', from the New York Times-bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of THE ADVENTURES OF BEEKLE and ARE WE THERE YET?

Everyone knows that when Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. But what happened afterwards?

Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat's poignant tale follows Humpty Dumpty, an avid birdwatcher whose favourite place to be is high up on the city wall - that is, until after his famous fall. Now terrified of heights, Humpty can longer do many of the things he loves most.

Will he summon the courage to face his fear?

This masterful picture book will remind readers of all ages that life begins when you get back up.

'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

'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
