9780007388127: My Henry

Married couples are used to little outings together. Henry's wife can see no reason why they should stop just because one of them has died. In fact she is apt to go a bit over the top, what with dinosaur rides and dolphin drawn water ski sessions. In the end none of it is quite as good as their past everyday life together.

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.

Review:

"My Henry is as charming as her other works... For all the depth of underlying emotion, there's a celebratory feel to it, an unfeigned lightness of spirit that, throughout her life, has been a great boon." Cassandra Jardine, The Telegraph"It bears all her trademarks, lively illustration, a cheerful blend of the everyday and the fantastic... A deeply poignant yet ultimately uplifting tale..." Giulia Rhode, Sunday Express"In this moving picture book, [Judith Kerr] explores in charming verse the magical and wondrous adventures a widow imagines for herself and her recently deceased husband." The LadyPraise for `One Night in the Zoo':"Lovely... uses soothing, pastel illustrations and exotic animals to make basic counting seem unintimidating." Daily Telegraph" A magical rhyming tale" The TimesPraise for `Twinkles, Arthur and Puss':"A very engaging take on feline behaviour" The BooksellerPraise for `The Tiger Who Came To Tea':"Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying." Dorothy Butler, Babies Need Books."A modern classic." The Independent."This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house." Junior MagazinePraise for `Mog the Forgetful Cat':"Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!" Choice MagazinePraise for `Goodbye Mog':"Kerr's warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic." Financial Times"Believable, amusing and moving." Nursery World"A supremely sensitive story." The Times
