Description of this Book

Award-winning author David Elliot brings us a delightful new picture book about Henry, a very particular sort of pig. One warm evening Henry sits on the step of his sty, gazing up at the stars. Some shine especially brightly and, before his eyes, they form a picture. "I've found the Great Pig in the Sky!" squeals Henry. He races off at once to show all the other animals. But to Henry's surprise, they don't view his exciting new constellation in quite the same way. Can Henry trust his own eyes or is he just seeing stars? This charming new tale about Henry and his friends is all about the shiftiness of perception. Henry's Stars is a companion volume to Henry's Map, which was named one of the US School Library Journal's Best Books of 2013.
