Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In traditional nursery rhyme fashion, Humpty falls off his wall—and has other adventures which are not totally successful. However, in the end, Humpty D. gets to snuggle with the person he loves best. Eagle has "extended" this familiar old story as he did previously with the three men in the tub and the cat and the fiddle. (Mental double-takes are par for the course when, for example, you see Humpty in the moat with a bunch of crocs and gators. Did that happen in the original?) The sing-song quality of the prose and soothing pastel illustrations give warmth to the story and encourage snuggling all around. Music and words for the rhyme are included. 2000, Gareth Stevens, $21.27 and $15.95. Ages 2 to 6. Reviewer: Chris Gill

I found all of the books in this series on sale in a remainders bin in a large used book store. This book suffers from the same defects as other books in the series- the art drawings are quite weak and the colors are washed out. The story itself is poorly written and has little sense of direction- it peters out half-way through and seems to start all over again in the middle of the book. The continuity is quite poor.
