Set in Northamptonshire, England… Henry, a talking Jack Russell, is part of a small team researching a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. He is the target of several dognappers but can he use his wit or guile to outwit them and, with the help of forty-year-old laboratory assistant Gwynne Davies, find the proof needed to convict the criminals. Thus begins a series of adventures for the unlikely pair. There have been amateur sleuths, there have been talking animals – Henry is both. This is Family Guy’s Brian meets Poirot meets My Fair Lady.
There have been amateur sleuths, there have been talking animals – Henry is both.
‘Oh, Henry’ may look like a young adult or children’s novel but the main human character is a woman in her early forties so a more general appeal. ‘For the young in all of us’.
I thought that this was a really fun book!
The idea was great and it could have been a bit silly but I think that the author has nailed it perfectly and Henry was fab! I have read a few books by this author now and I am going to take a guess that Henry has probably been one of the most fun characters that she has created and gets to write about – I thought he was ace!!
I thought that the book has a good flow to it and I liked the length of the chapters too which helped to keep the story quite punchy.
It is 4 stars from me, this is the first in the series and I thought it was a good fun read and really looking forward to the next book – highly recommended!
