About this item

Elspeth Pule can throw a tantrum the way a pro quarterback can throw a football. In other words, she's very good at it. So when her parents refuse to buy her a pet alpaca, she screams, hollers, and holds her breath until she passes out cold.

When she wakes she finds herself in a magical kingdom inhabited by characters she only thought she knew.

Humpty Dumpty is a 007-type spy, Bo-Peep is highly trained in the art of Shaolin stick fighting, and Old King Cole is really Old King Krool, an evil tyrant who has banished Dumpty, Bo-Peep, and their friends to the forest--and to a life of poverty and oppression.

Self-centered as she is, Elspeth couldn't care less about their plight. But if she ever wants to see home again, she will have to make a few new friends . . . and show them that sometimes a good old-fashioned tantrum is exactly what's needed.
