These tales will kidnap the reader and take them on a journey to all corners of the imagination; travelling through the cobwebs of the Victorian era to the depths of the sea, where intellectual oysters lurk and into alternative realities where bodies search for their wandering heads and a man solves the mystery of his stolen heart. The Topsy Turvy Tales offer a new upside down way of looking at the world, with subtle and profound allegorical messages on the nature of love, freedom and destiny. The title has already received support from celebrities such as Alain de Botton and Bill Nighy, who has recorded the stories for the promotion of the title. Topsy Turvy Tales is a beautifully produced hardback combining art and words with a quaint charm rarely found on the high streets, making it the perfect gift or collector's item. This is the first title from exciting and energetic new publishing company Humpty Dumpty Publishing, who team together writers and illustrators to publish exquisite titles with a twist. Humpty Dumpty Publishing will be presenting this new title at Hay-on-Wye on the 7th June and other festivals across the UK.
The Topsy Turvy Tales will be launched in London on 20th September. Who knows who will appear out of the Humpty Dumpty costume? Look out for fun guerilla stunts in the months leading up to the September launch.
