Care of Henry

By Anne Fine

Illustrated by Paul Howard

A gentle, heartwarming story about the friendship between a boy and his dog by much-loved author Anne Fine.

From the author of Bill's New Frock comes a tender and funny story about the friendship between a boy and his dog. Hugo has to choose who to stay with while his mother's having a baby. Granny? Mrs Mariposa next door? Uncle Jack? Who will care for him – and his dog Henry – the best? This charmingly illustrated tale of priorities and friendship will teach kids to think carefully about what they value most in life, and stay with them long after they've turned the final page. A touching story for younger readers from former Children's Laureate Anne Fine.
