Review quote

"The images, influenced by pop art and Disney, are witty and reward close attention. Detailed pictures of interiors, roofscapes, and street scenes, cleverly lit, show how Humpty can't sleep in his high bunk, how the boring cereals are on the low shelves, and how he walks along the shadow of a wall when he dare not climb the real thing." * Sunday Times * "A tender, wryly funny look at trauma and recovery" -- Imogen Russell Williams * Guardian * "Original, humorous and ecstatic" * Times Literary Supplement * "More than a nursery rhyme remix, Santat's story speaks boldly to the grip of fear and trauma, and to the exhilaration of mastering it." * Publishers Weekly, starred review * "A validating and breathtaking next chapter of a Mother Goose favourite." * Kirkus, starred review *
