Remember, Humphrey; never run, never jump, and NEVER. EVER. sit on a wall!

Humphrey is an egg. An egg with very protective parents. Make sure you double knot your shoelaces, Humphrey. Never run. Never jump and never ever EVER sit on a wall. You remember what happened to your uncle…

Humphrey lives a very quiet and cautious life, until the day he bumps into Princess Jean (PJ) in the park. An adventurer through and through, PJ can’t understand why Humphrey doesn’t allow himself to have any fun. She tells him tales of all her antics and mishaps and they don’t notice the park is closing.

Oh no! How will Humphrey get home? There’s only one way out. Over. The. Wall! When Humphrey finally faces his darkest fears, a surprising revelation lies on the other side.

This laugh out loud graphic novel is a joyous reversal of the traditional Humpty Dumpty tale of caution that will delight readers who are tiptoeing towards independence themselves.
