Denslow’s Humpty Dumpty was published in 1903 and illustrated by W. W. Denslow. Desnlow had a way of revising classical fairytales and bringing them to life in a new way. The text in the back of the book made me laugh out loud.
Denslow’s Picture Books for Children
For these books W. W. Denslow has revised and adapted several of the best classical fairy tales. He has improved these stories by elimination of all coarseness, cruelty, and everything that might frighten children. They are new; more beautiful and striking in both text and picture than any children’s books heretofore published. Each book is filled with pictures of action and fun in brilliant colors. The twelve books are uniform in size.
