The joke is on me....When I saw the title "Henry in Love", I thought
it was going to be about Henry VIII...

This book is both sweet and real. Henry is having one of those days. The kind where everything goes his way! His mom packs a blueberry muffin as a snack. A big kid football player tosses him the ball. And as for his love, well you'll see.

Product details 48 pages Balzer & Bray/Harperteen - English 9780061142888 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "McCarty (Jeremy Draws a Monster) keenly observes a schoolyard crush in this charmer. The cover pictures Henry, an openhearted boy cat, sitting at his desk alongside Chloe, a coquettish bunny. Chloe wears a mysterious grin and a flowered dress of palest pink, and her long ears flop carelessly to one side ('He thought she was the loveliest girl in his class'). McCarty nails several aspects of grade-school life (Henry demonstrates his 'best forward roll' to impress Chloe) and loads his compact sentences with meaning and longing. At one point, Chloe, who sits in the back row, coyly asks, 'Are you looking at me?' as delicate wildflowers roar across the page, blithely encapsulating Henry's adulation. And in a playground game of tag, she taunts him from atop the jungle gym, 'You will never catch me!' McCarty crafts Chloe as a perfect flirt, who claims the blueberry muffin Henry has saved for snack time, and Henry as smitten and quietly hopeful. This gentle, pitch-perfect romance will have readers' hearts thumping with the thrill of first love. Ages 3 — 6." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "All is fair in love and kindergarten....The exquisite cream-colored pages bring richness to the presentation that makes readers want to turn each page. This beautiful book should appeal to the little ones who have a special someone in their lives but dare not say a word about it." (starred review)
"Review" by , "McCarty nails several aspects of grade-school life (Henry demonstrates his "best forward roll"to impress Chloe) and loads his compact sentences with meaning and longing. This gentle, pitch-perfect romance will have readers' hearts thumping with the thrill of first love."
"Review" by , "A perfect Valentine's Day read and a fine picture book about love and friendship the rest of the year. Henry in Love not only illuminates the freshness of a burgeoning friendship in the elementary school set, McCarty's light-handedness evidences an even deeper love for the ordinary world. (starred review)
"Synopsis" by , A Caldecott Honor-winning author/illustrator offers a fresh take on first love in this picture book.
