Lipchenko's collection is a refreshing balance between popular and lesser-known nursery rhymes. You could spend days gazing at his illustrations and still not see everything, the detail and quality is that great. While, I enjoy this book very much, I am not sure that it would appeal to young children. Appreciating this book takes time and thought.

I don't quite understand the title of the book. It is Humpty Dumpty and friends, but the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme only makes up a fraction of this book. It should just be called Nursery Rhymes. Anyways, this book had many different nursery rhymes with illustrations for each. The illustrations were done well, but they were a bit creepy and probably scary for a young kid to read. I would recommend this book to a parent to use as a reference for telling nursery rhymes, but not for a kid to read.

The illustrations for these classic nursery rhymes are wonderful. However, some of the nursery rhymes are not the most popular, and therefore detract from the enjoyment of this picture book. Also, while the illustrations are really well done, they are not necessarily super attractive to young kids.

The very last nursery rhyme at the end adds a nice bedtime tale feel to the book.

Not my favorite of picture books because of the story has always been such a happy picture to me and this book is not happy.
Brandy Gilbertson
The illustrations in this book were a little creepy. The characters were illustrated like humans and they were just odd.
Worth checking out for the odd, quirky illustrations and some of the more unfamiliar nursery rhymes.
Nursery rhymes but they seemed unorganized
good pictures but wouldn't us in my classroom
This book is written in poetic form.
Great illustrations.
