About the Author
Ziggy Hanaor is a writer and publisher living in London, UK. She has authored picturebooks including Fly Flies (Cicada, 2019), Alex and Alex (Cicada 2021), The Pocket Chaotic (Cicada, 2020) and the graphic novel, Alte Zachen: Old Things (Cicada, 2022), which was received to critical acclaim.

Daisy Wynter is an illustrator based in Sussex. As a child she was a bookworm and a compulsive doodler, and this hasn't really changed in adulthood. Her love of picture books and comics led her to study for an MA in Children's Book Illustration at Goldsmith's, which she completed in 2020. She works primarily by hand, in pencil and gouache, and especially loves drawing dogs.


"A first purchase for all libraries and the best of what graphic novels have to offer. All readers will be able to appreciate the story of Humphrey "coming out of his shell" and teaching his family how to do the same. In an added bonus, readers learn what really happened to Humpty." - School Library Journal Starred Review

"Lays a liberating message on helicopter parents and their overprotected offspring." - Kirkus Reviews

It may be a short graphic novel, but this 72-page book packs a punch. Daisy Wynter's illustrations are the highlight of the book. Throughout the story, she captures the character's personality so well. The Egg Incident is a fun graphic novel that flips the Humpty Dumpty story on its head providing an entertaining story." - YA Books Central

"Cute illustrations throughout show Humphrey's fears as well as his excitement when he is brave enough to try new things." - Youth Services Book Review
