The Lovereading4Kids comment
Oh what fun! Henry races home to start his new library book, but as he starts to read he suddenly disappears into the story. You find yourself entering Henry's book alongside him, where, with magic on the loose, Henry soon discovers that he’s in the middle of a zoo breakout. Before the two stories merge, different fonts help keep them separate. Brian, the rather wonderful snake, has his own font too and demands that Henry helps the animals. The simple black and grey illustrations sit alongside and add to the story. London-based children’s author Karen Inglis has made a name for herself with teachers, reading charities and librarians for producing fun and fast-paced stories that get the most reluctant of readers turning the pages. Amusing and just a little bit scary, this is an enchanting and adventurous read.

Henry Haynes and the Great Escape by Karen Inglis
When Henry Haynes complains that his new book is boring he gets more than he bargained for. Before he knows it, he's been sucked down into the story and finds himself eyeball to eyeball with Brian, a bossy boa constrictor who's in charge of a zoo escape.
Brian won't let Henry return home until he's released the animals, including some hungry lions and Gordon - the extremely smelly gorilla who masterminded the escape plan. To make matters worse, it looks as if Gordon's out to get Henry...
Can Henry get home alive? And why didn't he just keep his big mouth shut about boring stories?
“…positively zips along with customary fizz and verve. The plot is both exciting and funny in equal measures. … there aren’t enough [shorter] books out there like this!” Louise Jordan, The Writers Advice Centre for Children’s Books
