Henry is a very serious boy. His room is always neat, and he always buttons his shirt right to the top.

But what should Henry do in the meantime?


Product Information

Henry was a very serious boy, who never daydreamed or played with toys and liked doing sums and keeping his room tidy. Then one day he had a very silly thought that didn't make any sense at all. Then another, and another! Very worried, Henry decided to consult The Big Book of Sensible Things. He learned that he'd caught imaginitis, and the only cure was to grow up, which could take a very long time. So Henry did the only sensible thing he could : he abandoned himself to imaginitis! The illustrations are in black and white, with the exception of Henry's escalating fantasies; so by the time we reach the last page, it's a riot of colour. A celebration of the imagination! Mandy
