Synopsis

Henry's Stars by David Elliot

One beautiful evening on the farm, Henry stares up at the sky. As he looks from star to star, they seem to form a picture. He sees it! A great big starry pig! Henry can't wait to show his friends. Yet instead of seeing the Great Pig's ears, legs, and curly tail, the sheep see a woolly body ...the Great Sheep! Abigail sees the Great Star Cow, of course, and the chickens spot Heavenly Hens flying all over the place. Henry is frustrated. Why don't the others see what he sees? Yet as he looks back up at the stars, all he sees is a sheep's ear next to a cow's horn on a horse's body. His mind all a clutter, Henry retreats back to his sty. Then, in the quiet of the night, Henry looks up ...and sees it!

Reviews

Praise for Henry's Stars Elliot s watercolor and pencil illustrations seamlessly blend the realism and farce that makes this story work so well. Teachers will enjoy using this story to exemplify point of view or introduce a unit on constellations. Younger audiences will relate to Henry and delight in the predictability of his predicament. This modern-day fable deserves a place in most collections.
