Humpty Dumpty used to love climbing, but after his big fall his confidence is shattered. The doctor can fix his shell, but how will he get his nerve back? When one of the King?s horses gets stuck on a cliff, Humpty has a chance to show the world what a resilient egg he can be.

Dave Horowitz creates a wholly original tale and cleverly mixes in lots of beloved nursery rhyme characters in a story that celebrates his love of climbing.
