Henry Wants MORE!

Random House Children’s Books, 2016
Written in perfect, playful rhyme, we spend a day with Henry and his family. Throughout the day, each family member plays with Henry who giggles and laughs. While Papa, Grandma, Lucy, Charlie, and Mama soon tire of their selected activity, Henry doesn’t and always asks for ‘More’. Done in soft pastel colors, readers see and feel the love exchanged on every page. At last, at day’s end, Henry falls asleep, but wait—there is one more ‘more’!
Asking for ‘more’ is so universal, every family member will relate. This heartwarming story is a joy to read and has the making of a classic.
