About the Book

What would you do if you suspect your best friend, who happens to be a giant egg, was killed but everyone else thinks it was an accident? Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed, a collection of twenty-two short fairy tale-like stories, tackles that question and many more.

In this collection's title story, Chicken Little is certain his friend did not fall from the ledge, and he intends to prove there is a conspiracy. Will he discover the truth before it's too late? Filled with interesting and delightful characters, these short stories ask questions not raised before. Can a reverse vampire find true love? Can the World Nose Hair champion really make the world a better place? Is it ever wise to stick cheese noodles in your nose? Can one live their life squeezing other people's ears in peace? If a whale and a tiger had a fight who would win?

Incorporating familiar characters in children's literature and folklore, Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed tells a series of tales with surprises to keep you guessing. Each story asks a different question, and each story offers a different, strange answer.
