Henry's Hand by Ross Macdonald


Henry's Hand by Ross Macdonald

Henry's Hand is a story about the friendship between Henry, a giant, and his right hand. Henry sometimes has trouble keeping track of his body parts--everything from his ears to one of his legs can fall off--but with help from Hand, his favorite body part, Henry keeps himself together. In fact, Henry and Hand are the best of friends ...that is, until Henry takes Hand for granted, pushes him too far, and Hand runs away. A charming story of friendship, forgiveness, and loyalty, Henry's Hand is also a quirky storybook that appeals to readers of all ages, especially anyone who knows what it feels like to get into a fight with your best friend.
