Read an Excerpt

"I don’t understand it,” Humpty Dumpty cried. “I was just sitting here on top of the wall as I usually do in the mornings, knitting egg cozies. The sun was shining. The birds were chirping and looking at me with their usual, curious expression. There wasn’t any wind. The earth didn’t shake. One second I’m up there and the next I’m down here. I don’t understand how this happened. I’ve never fallen before.”

“He was probably just following your example, Jack,” said Jill with a smirk.

King Jack decided to ignore his sister. “This is quite a coincidence. I, myself, have also just fallen down for no apparent reason,” said Jack.
