The monsters and I have been enjoying a plethora of Halloween-ish books recently. We recently had the opportunity to read the new book Henry’s Hand by Ross Macdonald. This book is the story of just two average best buds….Henry, a green monster, and his Hand. Completely normal buddy story! Unfortunately, Henry isn’t exactly a great pal to have and takes advantage of his Hand and doesn’t appreciate him at all, so Hand takes a road trip away from old Henry. I won’t spoil anymore of the story but let’s say Hand has some adventures while Henry realizes how much he misses his right hand man (insert drum snare…I’m here all week.) Zoe loved the book and kept laughing at the comical illustrations the book contains. The message is a good one for school aged kids that friendships should be a two way street and something treasured. You can get a copy of the book HERE.
