Humpty Dumpty Lived Near a Wall

If you thought Humpty Dumpty couldn’t bring tears to your eyes, think again.  Humpty Dumpty Lived Near a Wall tells a classic tale in a modern way—in a spooky burned-out world with illustrations so triumphant they gave me chills (multiple times!) and with a story so special you’ll want to read it every night.  A collaboration like this is the stuff of fairy tales!
