The stars take shape in this adorable companion to Henry's Map!

One beautiful evening on the farm, Henry stares up at the sky. As he looks from star to star, they seem to form a picture. He sees it! A great big starry pig! Henry can’t wait to show his friends. Yet instead of seeing the Great Pig’s ears, legs, and curly tail, the sheep see a woolly body . . . the Great Sheep! Abigail sees the Great Star Cow, of course, and the chickens spot Heavenly Hens flying all over the place. Henry is frustrated. Why don’t the others see what he sees?

In this charming companion to Henry’s Map, David Elliot explores—with gentle humor—the nature of art and perception. A perfect book for kids and adults who love to find shapes among the stars or anywhere else their imaginations may lead.

Praise for Henry's Stars

"Elliot’s watercolor and pencil illustrations seamlessly blend the realism and farce that makes this story work so well. Teachers will enjoy using this story to exemplify point of view or introduce a unit on constellations. Younger audiences will relate to Henry and delight in the predictability of his predicament. This modern-day fable deserves a place in most collections."—School Library Journal

From the Hardcover edition.
A fun-filled introduction to maps through the eyes of an adorable pig

Henry is a very particular sort of pig. "A place for everything and everything in its place," he always says. But when he looks out his window he is troubled. The farm is a mess!  Henry is worried that nobody will be able to find anything in this mess. So he draws a map showing all the animals exactly where they belong.  And Henry embarks on a journey through the farm, his friends tagging along as he creates his map: sheep in the woolshed, chickens in the coop, the horse in the stable. After the map is complete, Henry uses it to bring himself back home, where he is relieved to know that he is exactly where he belongs. A place for everything and everything in its place, indeed.

For fans of Zen Shorts by Jon J. Muth or of Winnie the Pooh, this sweet romp through the farm is adorably illustrated by David Elliot, who created the endearing animals who inhabit Brian Jacques world of Redwall.  Perfect for pre-schoolers and elemetary-schoolers learning to read maps for the first time.
