The Adventures of Kid Humpty Dumpty: Humpty Dumpty Meets Shellga by Benjamin Boyd
Young Humpty Dumpty wants to make friends with Shellga, the new girl in town. But every time he works up the nerve to talk to her, Sunny Side Up and Sunny Side Down (the very "anti-boy" Sunny Side Twins) do their best to scramble his plans.
After his failed attempts to talk to Shellga and getting an "F" on his spelling paper, poor Humpty is starting to feel pretty rotten. But with the help of his grandpa Dumpty and best friend, Eggden, things may not be so hard-cooked for little Humpty after all!
Follow the adventures of a lovable little egg-boy before he took his famous fall from the wall in this original offshoot from a classic children's tale.
The Adventures of Kid Humpty Dumpty: Humpty Dumpty Meets Shellga is a cute little children's book. I can see myself reading it to my class next week. It was fun to see that poor Humpty Dumpty has apparently always been a bit clumsy!
This was a nice little story with pictures that kids will enjoy looking at as you read. I like the message that it gives about friendship. The Adventures of Kid Humpty Dumpty will be a nice addition to the little library in my classroom.
*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
