Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Siamese star of High-Wire Henry goes to sea, climbs to the top of the mast, does a little whale-watching and helps rescue a man overboard. "As in other Henry outings," said PW, "the realistic artwork lends a touch of authenticity to far-fetched feline antics." Ages 5-up.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-That intrepid Siamese cat, Henry, is back in another satisfying adventure. This time he is a stowaway on a small sloop that two members of his family are taking out for a sail. Once discovered, Henry proves that cats are natural sailors. He climbs the mast for a full view, spots cavorting dolphins, and watches carefully while The Man gives The Kid a lesson on coming about and stopping the boat. When the adult accidently slips overboard, it is quick-thinking Henry who leads the rescue. Ingraham's finely detailed, realistic watercolor illustrations are full of expression, and interesting perspectives make the feline's daring escapades totally believable. Seamlessly complementing the art is a text that captures the lure of sailing ("The water lapped gently, as if it was stroking the boat.") The practices portrayed are authentic, and the exciting rescue makes this an on-the-edge-of-your-seat read-aloud.

Just received a second copy; the first was bought new back in 1997. We wanted a copy at home for the younger grandchildren. Great book, but beware of the condition of used books. We bought 2 'good' condition books, this one had every page wrinkled and some water damage. The copy of 'hot air henry' (from another vendor) was in near perfect condition and was also classified as 'good'. Buyer beware!

Both my 5 & 8 year old love the Henry the Cat books! I look forward to reading them too. They're well written prose, with a poetic twist. Was thrilled to find it on amazon as they are tough to come by. Highly recommend reading about Henry, smart cat!

My daughter and I love the Henry books. Each one of this author's books are fun and enjoyable for both the parent and the child. We also love the artwork in the books. Henry the Cat is a fun character for all children to enjoy.
