Review: Henry & Leo

Henry & Leo Henry & Leo by Pamela Zagarenski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Incredibly detailed mixed-media brings Henry's stuffed lion, Leo to life. When parted in the forest during a walk, Leo gains the help of forest animals for him to find his way home. Beautiful.

I love the endpapers starting the story of Henry's friendship with Leo--almost as a flashback. I also love the use of crowns to depict a human-like consciousness. So clever and creates such a magical experience.
