"Will inspire and empower all children... a great addition." -- School Library Journal

"Bailey and Song have crafted an early reader that effectively immerses the reader in its protagonist's world... Song's minimalist pen and ink illustrations perfectly suit Henry's methodical approach to life. The lilting rhythm of Bailey's text is calm and predictable; its concise and forthright diction reflects Henry's view of how the world should be." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The ending of this short chapter book, heavily illustrated and with a format and content to appeal to new readers, is as satisfying as Bailey's understanding prose and Song's gentle, friendly illustrations. Henry is an extremely sympathetic hero--relatable and authentic." - The Horn Book, starred review

"This balanced, well-crafted chapter book...includes moments of wry humor. In gentle ink lines and muted-blue washes, the illustrations simultaneously convey the upset feelings...and the directness of Henry's desires, all handled with respect and empathy for the protagonist. Deeply relatable reassurance for readers unnerved by change." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
