9780007388110: My Henry

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.

About the Author:

Judith Kerr was born in Berlin in 1923 but left Germany with her family during the Second World War. She met her husband, influential British screenwriter, Nigel Kneale, at the BBC. "There was total recognition," she says. "I sometimes wonder how my life would have been if he'd had a cold the day I went to the BBC." They married in 1954 and remained married until Kneale’s death in 2006. Judith Kerr lives in London.
