Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Board book
In the interest of making comparisons easier, I'm combining the reviews of two different editions of this story.

ISBN Humpty Dumpty (Tiny Play-a-Song) (4 stars) - Manufactured in China (boo hiss to Lincolnwood, Illinois based Publications International, Ltd.). Intended age group not specified. I'd suggest that it's appropriate for the under 3 crowd, with a caution that the battery, battery cover and screw are all choking hazards.

Humpty Dumpty fell off a wall, climbed high mountains, rode a train, went out into space, checked out a circus and, finally, went to bed.

Shocked? Come on, you are, too! As far as you've ever known, Humpty fell off the wall and that was the end of Mr Dumpty. But it turns out that adapter Kristi Fisher has a different memory and Humpty not only recovered but really got around after his tumble. I'm a big fan of tradition in nursery rhymes but have to admit that much of Mother Goose's writing wouldn't work today because there's a surprising level of violence. Humpty Dumpty ending up a scrambled egg certainly seemed a bit ugly to me, so if Fisher wants to resurrect him and give him a few more fun adventures, good for her and probably good for the kids, too.

Larry Jost's illustrations take up every left-hand page, from edge to edge. They're wonderfully bright and colorful and fun. The music is fine, but the book would be just as fine without it. The button is half in a cut out of the pages and half on an extension of the back cover. The board books pages are as sturdy as expected, but the extension is more apt to bend. The battery is replaceable, with either an Eveready 392 or Duracell D384/392.
