It keeps up the pace with an exciting premise and twists and turns every few chapters, moving the story forward. The Super Zeroes think they're in for a quiet second year at the School, but the most dangerous supervillain or Rogue Hero of them all has other ideas.

No-one has been able to go near Magpie in 30 years for fear of having their power stolen, so when Magpie summons Kid Normal to his top-security prison cell, The Alliance seizes the opportunity to glean new information on his crimes. The visit seems unfruitful, and frankly, a massive let-down, but Murph is convinced there must be more to know. A nonsense poem and a bit of digging lead the gang on their most important mission yet.

The book strikes a great balance between plot and Greg and James's authors wonderful brand of humour. The jokes fit in very well and add much needed lightness and fun. The message about facing your fears, one step at a time, is a nice one, complemented by some beautiful illustrations.

The aim is to visit as many dimensions as possible. Dan posted a goal on Twitter saying that if he hit the goal of 3, likes he would mix pink dye with blue dye and dye his hair whatever color he made. The tattoo is for his wife Jemma who according to Dan is the brightest part of his life. This book surprised me. This tattoo is an extension to his previous tattoo. Alphabet books teach the basics of the ABCs, and history books for kids shed light on subjects like pirates, animals and famous explorers.

At first, I wasn't really sure about the ending, but yeah, I guess it makes a sort of sense you'll see when you read it. All in all, this was a pretty good story about overcoming fears to live the life you want. Nov 20, Suad Shamma rated it did not like it Shelves: Wow, looks like I am literally the only one giving this book a bad review. I admit that makes me feel a little bad about doing this, but I can't really change my opinion because others felt differently.

I purchased this book after seeing it nominated for Best Picture Book as part of the goodreads Choice Awards I liked the concept, I liked the idea and my kid loves Humpty Dumpty so I thought it would be such fun reading this with him.

The illustrations seemed amateur, the printing seemed of low quality, the colors and the general look and feel lacked greatly. I'm not usually picky about these sorts of things, but given that this is a picture book, the quality of pictures and illustrations is a huge part that needs to be reviewed. The message behind the story was nice and sweet, but I'm not sure about the ending, so does he fall and gets broken into pieces again? Did he not learn his lesson then? Was he not more careful second time around? It took him a while to get over his fear, only to go through the same thing?

That part was a little confusing. All in all, not what I expected. I had higher hopes and expectations for this book. View all 16 comments. Jan 01, Krissy rated it really liked it Shelves: Not to often that you get a picture book about the after effects of trauma and even less often that it's actually enjoyable to read. This is just fantastic. There wasn't an illustration I didn't love, but the page with the cereal was pretty great. Dec 29, Lesley Burnap rated it it was amazing.

Sublime artistry in words and pictures. So much to unpack. Cannot do it here. Get this one for yourself, then share another copy with those you love, teach, care about Nov 06, Samantha rated it it was amazing Shelves: A great story about dealing with the aftermath of an incident that profoundly affects your life.

In this case, readers get a look at how Humpty Dumpty dealt with the aftermath of his fall from the wall. I really appreciated the way that after Humpty Dumpty was physically put back together readers were introduced to the ways in which he dealt with his mental reaction to the fall. There is so much good here and the ending is incredibly uplifting. I predicted that I'd like this book, but I Genius. Highly recommended for reading aloud to PreK-2, and additionally as a gift for picture book enthusiasts of all ages.

Kings County Hospital get it? But the main takeaway is on the backside of the dust cover: Nov 09, Kristen rated it it was amazing Shelves: So I read this to a group of 1st and 2nd graders today and was surprised by how emotional it made me. There's something really powerful about this message and I think adults benefit from this message just as much as kids do.

I was a little worried the kids wouldn't think it was silly enough or be engaged by it, but they LOVED this. There was a clamor at the end for who would get to check it ou So I read this to a group of 1st and 2nd graders today and was surprised by how emotional it made me. There was a clamor at the end for who would get to check it out, and on the spread at the end with the wings they were all ooohing and aaahing in delight. It produced shock and awe in the kiddos and a surprisingly emotional response from me, so, you know, you should just read it!

Also, can we talk about how great the cereal spread is? First of all, I love cereal, and I loved the use of color on that page. Apr 16, Janet rated it it was amazing Shelves: What a funny, thoughtful book about fear and anxiety as well as resilience. Santat always knocks it out of the park when it comes to the art you'll love the color choices on the pages where Humpty is shopping for cereal , and his tales are sensitive without losing their sense of humor.

What a beautiful story of overcoming fear. Jan 15, Colona Public Library rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was just an awesome book. For everyone who loves nursery rhymes this book is for you. The illustrations were so colorful. This book starts off after Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall.

But it changed my life. There were some parts that couldn't be healed with bandages and glue. Will he ever conquer his fear? You will have to read this book to find out. Dec 16, Jason rated it it was amazing Shelves: I'm giving it 5 stars anyway, but I kind of wish the story had ended two pages earlier. I dunno if anyone will get this, but sometimes there is more glory in being a cracked egg who overcomes the odds than coming to realize that you aren't actually an egg but something much more special.

I'm not sure how to put this the way I mean it, but my whole life I've wanted to be special-to stand out in the crowd, to be loved and admired from near and far.

But the closer I get to accepting that I am just I'm giving it 5 stars anyway, but I kind of wish the story had ended two pages earlier.
