After I Fall

By: Dan Santat BUY BOOK HERE

Life begins when you get back up!! (cue song "i get knocked down, but i get up again. you're never going to keep me down") A wonderful epilogue to the famous Humpy Dumpty fall and overcoming fears. And I love that paper airplanes are involved!

"Fortunately, all the king's men managed to put me back together. Well, most of me. There were some parts that couldn't be healed with bandages and glue".


Everyone knows that when Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. But what happened after?

Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat's poignant tale follows Humpty Dumpty, an avid bird watcher whose favorite place to be is high up on the city wall―that is, until after his famous fall. Now terrified of heights, Humpty can longer do many of the things he loves most. Will he summon the courage to face his fear?
