My Henry

Written by Judith Kerr

My Henry Synopsis

Through charming verse and glowing illustrations, Judith Kerr takes us on a magical and moving journey that proves love really does conquer everything. A truly special picture book destined to be loved and treasured by children and adults alike for years to come. It's things we've never tried before That are the greatest fun, Like riding on a dinosaur, Which I had never done. Married couples are used to little trips together. Henry's wife can see no reason why they should stop just because one of them is no longer around. In fact she can't help going a little bit over the top, imagining all sorts of wonderful outings, including dinosaur rides and dolphin drawn water ski sessions. In the end however, even the most magical and exotic daydreams can never quite compare to their past everyday life together. Fom the bestselling author of The Tiger Who Came To Tea.
