Format: Hardcover
This is just a tail-riffic book filled with zany puns (much better than my own). Kate Feiffer's TALE of the Australian sheep dog (they typically do not have tails) is not only witty and wise, but her story-telling is superb. The lessons here about finding your identity, your true friends, and self-acceptance are important ones, but they never take precedence over the first requirement of telling a good story.

Feiffer sounds an authentic note in showing that not all of Henry's "friends" are nice, either pre- or post-tail. This is a departure from some books' all-support-all-the-time stance, and the realism makes it a more helpful for any toddler or early grade schooler. However, when Henry ultimately decides he'll just go without a tail, all the dogs agree that's fine: One mildly dissenting spoil-sport might have enhanced book discussion. Still, the young target audience will appreciate the dog's unifrom acceptance.

Kate Feiffer is talented enough to command her pick of illustrators, but she didn't have to look any further than her own backyard,; or rather, her dad's: Award-winning illustrator-author-etc. Jules Feiffer. His pictures have the classic Feiffer style, casual line and color drawings that evoke movement and character, and a mixture of realism and fantasy befitting one of our best humorists and satirists. Feiffer suggests personality in his ore subtle drawings, but also depicts the wild shenanigans caused by Henry's fake tails. One of them, a long ropey tail made by a TAILOR (of course!), enables Henry to do all kinds of fancy tricks, earning the admiration of most of the dogs. Alas, he trips over the buttoned-on tail, can't even wag it, and is found out.

Discouraged and rejected (by some), Henry leaves his home and neighborhood.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Massachusetts Mom on December 22, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Our eldest daughter received "Henry, the Dog with No Tail" as a birthday gift, and it immediately leapt to the top of the stack of bedtime favorites. Our children love Henry and his posse's fanciful antics and the endearingly realistic illustrations. The book has sparked lots of conversation among our kids about the side life our dog might be leading when she is out-and-about with her own doggie friends. Most of all, our kids love that Henry's friends want him to be happy and that, in the end, Henry learns to be happy just as he is.

Whether or not you're a dog lover, you'll love this tail's tale.

Format: Hardcover
As the guardian of an Australian Shepherd who happens to be named Henry, I snapped this book right up without even looking to see what it was about. Once I read it I knew all of the children in my life would love it, especially since they're all dog-lovers and have a "cousin" Aussie named Henry.

First of all, Jules Feiffer's illustrations are wonderful as always. He captures the characters' personalities just perfectly. The story is wonderful as well. Kate Feiffer uses lots of fun word-play that parents will love and kids will get a giggle out of it too. It is lighthearted but has a good message about acceptance at its core.

If there is a 4 to 6 year old in your life, he or she will love the wit and whimsy found in "Henry, the Dog with No Tail."

Also an absolute MUST for Australian Shepherd lovers.

I purchased this book because I own a Corgi (he has no tail ). "Henry" is not a Corgi but the premise is still the same. I have read this book to early elementary children and they love it. It gives me a chance to tell them about my Corgi and to talk a bit about their own dogs who may or may not have a tail.

I love this book & recommend it for any Australian Shepherd owners or lovers. I was delighted with the high quality of the cover & pages, & just love the story. I got it for my adult daughter because she has an Australian Shepherd.

I have a pup with no tail, he's a hoot, but reading them is interesting. I got this book for the grandkids in my life and it's a fun story. It's ok to be different and it's really they only way to be - yourself.

It took a little while to get to me but is definitely worth the wait. I really like the book and other than having a child's name written inside the cover it is in great shape.
