After the Fall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. We have all heard the echo of finality in this cautionary nursery rhyme. Some of us still have trouble getting past the image of the king’s horses (of course…with their delicate hooves!). And then there’s the king’s men jockeying for position and failing to put Humpty together again. Poor Humpty. But Dan Santat imagined that there was more. Humpty somehow gets the help he needs and, with bandages on his cracked shell and insecurity lines on his brow, strives to find his mojo and get back up.
