Observer Review - Picture Books

selected and reviewed by Kate Kellaway

Of special note:

Christmas is a time for remembering absent family and friends, and My Henry by Judith Kerr (HarperCollins £7.99) is a picture book to touch the heart as well as make one laugh aloud. It is a new departure for Kerr, a deliciously singular extended daydream in which she imagines wild, airborne outings with her late husband, Henry. He is dressed in a pink cardigan and yellow tie and has sprouted some rather inefficient looking green wings to help him fly. Heaven, obviously, is his new address. And bliss, all round, is guaranteed. (All ages) KATE KELLAWAY
