One of the most meaningful books published this year. A story about what transpired after Humpty’s proverbial fall, with incredible composition, details, use of color and perfect visual storytelling that conveys so much of the emotion of the narrative. A powerful work. Step out to your nearest independent bookstore for a copy if you have a couple more gifts to buy at this eleventh hour, or want a worthwhile addition to your gifts under the tree.
After the Fall was written and illustrated by Dan Santat and published by Roaring Brook Press.
