I, Humpty

I, Humpty

by Eric C. Wilder




I, Humpty is a collection of mock-tabloid satire marrying the reality of everyday life with popular elements from fairytales, folklore, and nursery rhymes. Rejoice with the Beast as Belle grants him permission to convert the den into a man-cave. Learn why the third little pig grows weary of his live-in brothers. Follow the courtroom drama of Rumpelstiltskin's indictment in the Straw-To-Gold Scandal. I, Humpty covers all of these stories and more.

Praise for I, Humpty

"I, Humpty is a smart, laugh-out-loud spin on fairy tales in a modern setting. Not since 'Politically Correct Bedtime Stories' have I enjoyed fairytale satire so much. Definitely a collection I'll be recommending and sharing with friends."
-Jess E. Owen, author of the Summer King Chronicles

"The best collection of twisted fables around..."
-Ned Hickson, syndicated humor columnist at Siuslaw News

"Shocking, silly, and sometimes hitting closer to home than one would expect from stories begun in lands so far, far away, this is journalism that doesn't flinch from the grimmer side of 'once upon a time.'"
-Danielle E. Shipley, author of The Wilderhark Tales

"In I, Humpty, Wilder's tenacious investigative reporting huffs, puffs, and blows the roof off the fairy tale world."
-Jocelyn Koehler, author of The Nine Kingdoms Series

"Creative and quirky, Wilder presents an alternate universe that reminds us fairy tales never needed happy endings. His laugh-out-loud versions of the beloved stories we grew up on are irreverent in the best sense of the word and leave me pleading for a sequel."
-Robin L. Flanigan, journalist

About the Author

Eric Wilder was raised by a roving herd of deer in the woodlands of Upstate New York. As a consequence, he has a penchant for salty snacks, an aversion to camouflage, and a tendency to freeze at the emergence of bright lights. Eric has since adapted to the mannerisms of modern society, though he still tends to wander from time to time. Eric will tell you that he is an author, a designer, or a blogger. What he should say is that he spends the majority of his time responding to the whims of his adorable children.
