Andrew Henry isn’t like all the other children. He likes to be alone, and he often gets into trouble. A charming illustrated story of a boy who leads all the children of town away to live in children’s village where he builds each a special house suited to their particular interests. When the children are reunited, their families learn to support Andrew Henry’s interests in inventing. Illustrated with detailed pen and ink drawings.

Andrew Henry’s Meadow, like all books reviewed here, may be found at the San Juan Island Library.
