There are two sections to the book. The first section contains Humpty Dumpty poems – nothing like the original nursery rhyme. In this book, Humpty Dumpty is literally a flawed character with unique problems, due to his physiology. He is also indestructible, and therefore, easy to laugh at.
The second part is like a box of chocolates. An assorted mix of irreverent treatments to life’s problems. If a person can learn to laugh at themselves at an early age, and not take life TOO seriously – well, they probably can add 20 years to their life expectancy. They’ll have a lot more friends too!
It is not all humor, though. There are some deep, reflective . . . contemplations.
This book is NOT intended for young children - though they certainly would enjoy large parts of it. They do enjoy the rhyming. It was written with the intention to maintain a child’s interest in reading from intermediate stages, through to adult level reading and beyond. Some of the words and concepts used will certainly be a stretch, but not too much. The rhyming helps!
This would be a great book for young people to share with their grandparents. Both age groups will enjoy it
