Book review: The Power of Henry’s Imagination, by Skye Byrne, illustrated by Nic George

Byrne, Skye. Illustrated by Nic George. The Power of Henry’s Imagination. Aladdin, 2015. $17.99. ISBN 978-1-4814-0626-0. Unp. Ages 4-8. P8 Q8

Byrne Power of Henrys ImaginationThe illustrations are simple with brown pages and drawings of the characters but every page there is a picture of actual items such as leaves, a shirt, a ribbon, etc. This is a story of a little boy and his favorite toy Raspberry, a stuffed rabbit, who he does everything with. But Henry loses Raspberry and tries to get everyone to help him look for him. His grandpa told him no luck and to pretend that Raspberry was with him on his adventures. Henry has a great imagination and they go to the mountains, sea, stars, etc. The story has a happy ending as the mailman brings Raspberry back after he had found him lying in the mud. This is a great book about imagination.
