I loved this book before I even opened it...1. It's by Oliver Jeffers, a favorite of mine 2. I love the concept and 3. The cover couldn't be cuter!
The illustrations in this book are collages which is a bit of a departure for Jeffers but they are beautiful and retain the feeling of his previous books, Lost and Found and How to Catch a Star. The story is cute and quirky and the protagonist, Henry, has all the gamine charm of earlier Jeffers heroes.
