Shy as her big brother is bold, dimity prefers the shadows to the spotlight and never joins her performing family in the tent at showtime. But one fateful afternoon, humpty climbs the factory wall at the edge of the circus ground, and slips. It is dimity, not all the king's horses or all the king's men, who finds her voice and saves his life!
With delicate, whimsical illustrations and at times poetic prose, Graham draws the reader into the Dumpty family's life in the circus and shows that not everyone has to be outgoing and loud to be a hero.
