Summary: Humpty Dumpty arrives in the emergency room with a cracked shell. He’s losing too much yolk. Dr. Glenda must think of something quick. Since it was Weasel’s pop that scared Humpty in the first place and caused him to fall off the wall, Dr. Glenda asked Weasel to give up his headphones and last piece of bubble gum. Dr. Glenda put the headphones on Humpty’s head and tighten them so that the crack in his head was closed up. Then she patched it with a piece of bubble gum to hold it together until it healed.

Literary Merit: Familiar characters. Easy to read with short sentences and common vocabulary. Supports early independent readers.
