A joyous reversal of the traditional Humpty Dumpty tale of caution

Humphrey is an egg. An egg with very overprotective parents. "Remember Humphrey; never run, never jump and never ever EVER sit on a wall. You remember what happened to your uncle...".

Humphrey lives a very quiet and cautious life, until the day he bumps into Princess Jean (PJ) in the park. An adventurer through and through, PJ can't understand why Humphrey doesn't allow himself to have any fun. She tells him tales of all her antics and mishaps and they don't notice the park is closing.

Oh no How will Humphrey get home? There's only one way out. Over. The. Wall When Humphrey finally faces his darkest fears, a surprising revelation lies on the other side.

The Egg Incident is a laugh-out-loud graphic novel that will delight middle-grade readers who are tiptoeing towards independence themselves. It is a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection.

Written by Ziggy Hanaor, author of the critically acclaimed graphic novel, Alte Zachen: Old Things (Cicada, 2022), and hilariously brought to life in Daisy Wynter's emotive illustrations.
