Reviews from other stories in the series:
"We found the stories (including the other Henry books in the series by this author) very entertaining and funny. I love the author's writing style and thought it was a great read for children overall. Your children will love it. I would recommend this book."
"A great little story, just the right length to be read in one sitting. It reads easily enough for a youngster to read themselves but is involved and flows well enough for an adult to read aloud without being switched off by the repetitiveness or short stubby sentences that are often used in children's books (That's because it doesn't have any such short-comings). Little Miss (6) could probably attempt to read most of the story but preferred to have it read to her so she could just be lost in the magic of it. It obviously absorbed her as she let out various exclamations as I read, usually exactly the same as the reaction from the characters in the book."
"As always, Henry comes across as a real flesh and blood kid, which is no small feat and perhaps Ms. Moxey's greatest strength."
