Just Henry reviewed by Amanda Craig

Despite its length (at least 200 pages should have been pruned off) this is a thrilling, richly detailed story that rips along to a hair-raising climax in which Henry and his sister are imprisoned in a cellar and about to be murdered. Several times, I found myself crying; only the greatest authors of children's fiction share this ability to touch the heart.
