From New York Times bestselling author Andy Andrews, this hilarious rhyming story, complete with charming art, offers comfort to children who feel left out or are in need of a good friend.
At some point, almost every child struggles with feeling like they don't fit in or are left out-just like Henry Hodges. Henry is a lonely little boy on a lonely little street who longs for a friend. One day, his mother and father take him to a pet rescue shelter and his lonely world is changed! Told in a playful rhyme with adorable illustrations, this book will be a favorite among children and parents who love dogs and, ultimately, will comfort and encourage children who struggle with feeling accepted and finding friends.
Kids will want to read this whimsical and imaginative story again and again!
I received a complimentary copy of this book.
Cassandra's Review - I rescue animals from kill shelters and try to find them good homes whenever I can and the story having that child bonding connection is great. No the book does not state local kill shelter as it would not scare your kids, but in some cases like in my area there are no humane places to bring strays. Now lets get back to Henry who is very likeable and easy to understand. He has a need that most kids feel at one time or another even if they have the best homes and families. The author is perfect for writing children's book as this one is awesome.
