My Henry

Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

Review

The old lady sitting quietly in her armchair seems to be having a little nap before tea but in her head she is climbing Everest, riding dinosaurs and having all sorts of wild adventures with Henry, her late husband.

Henry died and went to heaven but every afternoon between four and seven they let him out to keep his wife company so she can remember the happy life they had together.

Unconventional subject matter for the very young is presented with gentle humour and a sense of great joy in this picture story with rhyming text and appropriately magical illustrations.
