This brightly coloured book starts with Humpty sitting on his famous wall, talking about the future with his friends. One of them asks what he wants to be when he grows up and his response shocks them. He wants to be a boiled egg! Aghast, they suggest that he thinks outside of the box.
Wee Willie Winkie thinks Humpty should be a footballer, Little Bo Peep suggests he becomes a detective, whilst Mary Mary Quite Contrary thinks he would make a great musician. Soon everyone is sharing their career aspirations. Little Miss Muffet dreams of becoming a scientist, Goosey Gander plans to become a builder, and This Little Piggy wants to be a traffic warden!
Inspired, Humpty declares he’s going to listen at school, get a job at a space agency and then reach for the stars! But will he achieve his dream?
This is a fantastic story for starting a conversation around jobs and careers and it encourages your children to work hard and think big.
The illustrations are glorious and Ivy loves seeing familiar nursery rhyme characters in unfamiliar situations and wearing an array of uniforms. Doctor Humpty is her favourite!
