Reviews

  • "The images, influenced by pop art and Disney, are witty and reward close attention. Detailed pictures of interiors, roofscapes, and street scenes, cleverly lit, show how Humpty can’t sleep in his high bunk, how the boring cereals are on the low shelves, and how he walks along the shadow of a wall when he dare not climb the real thing."
