What Kids (Big and Little!) are Saying…

Publisher's Weekly October 17, 2011

"It's just another crazy morning at Henry's house...Barber's jaunty illustrations add liveliness. His loose yet polished cartooning offers many visual gags, including portraits of a ferocious wolf hanging over the secretary's desk and bed, and Henry's dog's exaggerated facial expressions."--Publisher's Weekly October 17, 2011

Lezlea Dahlke
"Henry is such a loveable character and we all know the world is run by school secretaries!  With great artwork and a hysterical story, the book won't stay on the shelf!"--Lezlea Dahlke, Youth Services Librarian   Winona Public Library
Kaylee Campbell

"Super good book!  I liked how it told us about an important school rule, which is being on time."--Kaylee Campbell, first grader

Amy Hamborg

"This is an adorable book that parents, teachers, and students will enjoy together over and over. Every elementary school has a little 'Henry and Miss Timberlane.' And the pictures are delightful!"--Amy Hamborg, Elementary Principal, Hudson, WI

Connor Berndt

"I like Henry!-- He's funny.  The polka-dot underwear made me laugh.  I liked the whole book! "--Connor Berndt, first grader Henry you're hungry AGAIN?
