Booklist Review

Preschool-Gr. 1. Humpty Dumpty makes it off the wall without a scratch in this Green Light Reader. It's Humpty's friends who come to his rescue: first a mouse, then a rabbit, and finally a small pink pig pile under the nervous egg boy and cushion his fall, with smiles all around. Short sentences in large print set against a white background rhyme and bounce with a simple, pleasing rhythm. Youngest readers will have fun spotting a familiar character, while the clear watercolor drawings have all the motion and brightly colored appeal of an animated TV show. --Gillian Engberg
