Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this variation on the Humpty Dumpty rhyme, Humpty sits on the wall and doesn't want to have a big fall. A series of friends offer aid, but Humpty exclaims that they are too small to help. Finally, when his friend the pig comes to help, Humpty feels there is enough help to get him off the wall intact. This Humpty is attired in a green shirt, blue pants, red shoes and a hat, all depicted in watercolor illustrations. His actions are quite limited but his little friends demonstrate lots of energy and initiative, and the artists have managed to get real expression into the faces of Humpty's friends. Part of the "Green Light Reader" series, this is a Level 1 book for grades K-1. There is information about reading readiness on the opening pages, which parents will find useful. 2001, Harcourt, $10.95. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer:Marilyn Courtot
