362E: Wandering Through the Nursery Rhymes (Solved!)

I’m looking for a children’s book that my partner used to have 30 years ago – she possibly even got it from her mother.
It’s a story that follows a boy on a journey through nursery rhymes – he goes on a walk and meets various nursery rhyme characters on the way. She can definitely remember him meeting Humpty Dumpty and she remembers at some point the boy visits a petrol station. The book is very well illustrated apparently and she thinks the cover may have been green but she’s not 100 percent certain on that.

  1. This is my first visit to this website so i hope I’m using it properly – this sounds a bit like Gumdrop’s Magic Journey by Val Biro. I don’t think he meets Humpty Dumpty but lots of fairy tale characters, and there is a magic petrol station!

  2. Hello, I tried to leave a reply yesterday about this but I can’t see my comment – don’t know if it’s awaiting moderation? Anyway I believe this could be Gumdrop’s Magic Journey by Val Biro. It definitely features a magic petrol station, although not Humpty Dumpty specifically but many other fairy tale characters (not nursery rhymes).
