Humpty Dumpty Climbs Again

Humpty Dumpty Climbs AgainSummary: this story is about humpty dumpty who is humiliated. All the king’s horses and men make fun of him for falling off the wall. He just sits on his chair in his underwear watching television and is determined to never climb another wall. This is until his friend needs help.

Mentor wiring trait: This book writing trait is ideas. The author does a great job about getting his ideas and main message across to the readers. With a little humor along the way, I think this is a great story to teach multiple meanings to your children.

Classroom integration: I cannot tell you how many meanings this story has. This would be great to introduce to your class and have the children choose a meaning and write about it or add their own twist to the story. One of the meanings from this story is about how if you fail once you should always get up and try again. Another meaning is you should NEVER make fun of someone because you might not know, or you might not realize how valuable they are. It is also about bravery. This would also be great to use in science class. At the begging of the story, Humpty Dumpty falls off the wall and breaks – you could introduce this in a science class and have kids figure out a type of protected material they could put around the egg to keep it from breaking. This would be a great experiment for trial and error.

For example, butt and underwear. It is not overly raunchy but worth mentioning. Moving on…Horowitz’ characterization of Humpty Dumpty seems to offer the egg some respect. He is typically viewed as a clumsy or “dumb” for falling off the wall but in this book he is brave, courageous, and overcomes a setback. The illustrations are simple, dullcolored, and humorous to some degree but the text is the star here. I am neutral in my liking of this book but I do think that many children and adults will enjoy the humor and sense of empowerment provided in this story.

*Horowitz also did a nice of job of incorporating tidbits from other rhymes and tales into the plot...I think I'll bump my rating up to 3 stars from 2. This is a humorous nursery rhyme spin off story of Humpty Dumpty getting back up there after his accident at the wall. With an inspirational message and cartoonish illustrations (including an egg wearing underpants), this is a good story for elementary school age students. Our girls giggled at the sight of Humpty in his undies and I liked that he found a way to overcome his fear.

I think that the book will appeal to older children who have grown out of nursery rhymes, but enjoy the nostalgic nod to a familiar character. The story is entertaining to read aloud, and we really enjoyed reading this book together.

This story was selected as one of the books for the February 2013Fractured / Alternative Mother Goose discussion at the PictureBook Club in the Children's Books Group here at Goodreads. Read my full review at wadingthoughbooks.wordpress.com!

This is a lovely continuation of the nursery rhyme, beginning with someone finally being sensible enough to call a doctor to put Humpty Dumpty back together again–though did not one of the king’s horses or the king’s men have any first aid training? The Health and Safety committee is falling down on their job too, I’d say. There are some nice references to other nursery rhymes too, such as including the Dish and the Spoon, the laughing Little Dog, and the scary Spider. The illustrations are large, bright, simple, and add some funny, if immature, jokes that will entertain kids. For example, when Humpty is broken, one of the king’s men holds up a piece of Humpty and asks “What is this?” and the other king’s man says “I think it’s his butt.” The adults reading it will laugh at the king’s men bemoaning “Oh the humanity” when Milt the horse is stuck on the wall, and when Humpty promises never to climb without safety equipment or pants again. There’s also some nice details in Humpty’s house, with photographs on the wall of him climbing lots of different mountains.

This book is probably more for an adult to read to a child–all of the words are the same size and set in short paragraphs, and some of the vocabulary might be a bit difficult for a beginning reader. Most kids will recognize the different nursery rhymes referenced, so the adult reader can use those to draw connections between books, and to demonstrate how stories can continue outside of the single text–what happens next after “they all lived happily ever after.” It can also be used to point out that just because something bad happens is no reason to quit doing something you love–just be more careful in the future. And always wear pants. Pants are important.
I absolutely love this book. I read it to the fourth grade class I substituted in yesterday and they loved it. They laughed and I had everyone's attention as we read and talked about this story. They wanted to read it again immediately. As it is the public library's book and I have to return it, I might have to buy a copy and carry it with me when I sub in other classrooms as I think other students will enjoy it also. Fun pictures and a great story line make this humorous story something you will remember.

Poor Humpty! We all know he got a bad rap when he fell down and no one could put him back together again but in this story we can thank the King's horse. The horse called the doctor and he was able to put Humpty back together. But, Humpty doesn't want to climb walls any more and well, Humpty isn't Humpty if he doesn't climb walls so he just sits around watching TV and people make fun of him (I do believe this is called bullying which is a lesson in itself). He has visitors from other nursery rhymes but the poor guy just is not himself. Everyone wants the old Humpty Dumpty back but can anything get him off his chair and away from the TV? It's nice to see Humpty Dumpty get some respect in this version. I found the story humorous and engaging, even though I don't think it's destined to be a favorite. It was clever how some other nursery rhyme characters made an appearance (I chuckled at the "along came a spider" and "the little dog laughed" bits). Beneath the funny exterior, I also think it presents a thoughtful message about how we need to have passions and special hobbies and interests in our lives and could even perhaps help a child understand about an elderly relative or someone who is struggling with a new injury or disability to show how they might be feeling lost without being able to do things they used to enjoy. (Note that there is some mild "potty humor" like Humpty Dumpty going around in his underwear.) Nursery rhyme hero Humpty Dumpty experiences some posttraumatic stress in this revisionist take on his classic poem"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, / Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. / All the king's horses and all the king's men / Couldn't put Humpty together again"refusing to carry on with his climbing hobby after a particularly nasty fall shatters his shell. Becoming something of a couch potato, he ignores his friend Dish (of the famous Dish and Spoon duo), and only leaves his house when a spider (being done with Miss Muffet for the time being) comes along and frightens him into running outdoors. Making his way toward the hills, Humpty discovers that one of the King's Horses has gotten stuck on a cliff, and suddenly finds the courage to climb again, coming to the rescue and proving that he is still the daring egg that everyone had thought him to be...

Chosen as one of our February selections over in The PictureBook Club to which I belong, where our theme was "Fractured Nursery Rhymes," Humpty Dumpty Climbs Again is an entertaining examination of what happens after our egg hero takes his famous fall. I appreciated the way Dave Horowitz worked other nursery rhyme characters into his tale, and thought the cartoonstyle artwork was well suited to the story, accentuating the humor in the text. I'll be curious to see how this compares to another revisionist take on Humpty's story, Jeanie Franz Ransom's What REALLY Happened to Humpty?: From the Files of a HardBoiled Detective , which was also chosen as a selection for February.
