The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Picture Books for kids that love Adventure.

Children will love this warm and witty story with its adorably entertaining central character. Poor little Henry, unlike all the other baby penguins who are having fun sliding on the ice and tumbling in the snow, Henry is not happy because he doesn't like the cold and dreams of sandy shores and warm seas. When a boat sails close to the ice, Henry jumps on board and heads off in search of sunshine. It doesn't take him long, however, to realise that there's no place quite like home.

Synopsis

Henry's Holiday by Gillian Shields

About the Author

Gillian Shields

Gillian Shields was born and brought up in Yorkshire. As she grew up, she had two passions; books and theatre. Gillian’s love of books led her to read English at St Catharine's College, Cambridge. After university she studied acting in London, and then worked in a drama school for several years, becoming Vice-Principal.

Having children gave Gillian an excuse to carry on reading children’s books, as well as motivation to write them. She has a young son and a grown-up daughter, and is married to Brian, who works for the International Herald Tribune.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
