Humpty Dumpty by Salina Yoon

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall...and it didn't end well. Or did it? In this new version of an old rhyme, Salina Yoon creates an Easter-themed story that might just have a happy ending.

I think it's fitting that Humpty Dumpty has an Easter theme. He's probably one of the most famous eggs in literature, certainly an egg that is also a character (and not just featured, like green eggs). Is there any connection between this egg being put back together on Easter, the same holiday that celebrates Jesus' resurrection from the dead? Probably, but it's likely best not to think too much about that. Instead, think about the bright colours and fun images that will appeal to kids and the holiday tie-in that makes it a natural fit for parents to add to Easter baskets.
