About Think Big by Kes Gray and Nathan Reed:

A reimagining of the classic story Humpty Dumpty. The story begins with Humpty and his friends discussing the future as they sit together on a wall. Humpty declares he wants to be a boiled egg, but his nursery rhyme friends encourage him to think again by making other suggestions about what he could be.
