Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Humpty Dumpty was really a big, bad egg. Humpty decided that he was going to be king of everything around him so he threw the pussycat into the well, left to Jack and Jill to fall down the hill, and even threw stones at the Kings men. Something really strange happened that night as he stayed on his wall. A nearsighted, high jumping cow and little dog walking up the hill with a dish and a spoon. The dog challenge the cow to jump over the wall and Humpty Dumpty woke up in a fright and fell off the wall, hit the ground and smashed into pieces. The remains were gathered by the Kings men and eventually scrambled eggs were served at the palace for the Kings breakfast; and as you can conclude that was the end of bad old Humpty Dumpty. The closing page has notes for adults including the following information as well as suggestions for activities before and after reading the book. "Tadpole Nursery Crimes" are designed for transitional and early readers. They are dependent on the readers knowing the original rhyme so they can appreciate the unique twist on traditional tales. This is a Guided Reading Level F text. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
