Listen to an audio clip

Now we have a double page of lots of little Humpty Dumptys up to all sorts of tricks. My goodness, what an acrobatic egg he is! He can stand on one leg, balance a plate of cakes in the air, juggle his bricks, stand on his head and do cartwheels. Sometimes he is carrying a pink parasol which he twirls about him. A parasol is a kind of umbrella which keeps off the hot sun instead of the rain.

What's inside

  • A picture book with braille pages and raised tactile images.
  • Audio descriptions with music and sound effects in your chosen format of either CD or USB.
  • An ‘Articles for the Blind’ returns label for the free and convenient return of the box.
