The stars take shape in this adorable companion to Henry's Map ! One beautiful evening on the farm, Henry stares up at the sky. As he looks from star to star, they seem to form a picture. He sees it! A great big starry pig! Henry can't wait to show his friends. Yet instead of see...ing the Great Pig's ears, legs, and curly tail, the sheep see a woolly body . . . the Great Sheep! Abigail sees the Great Star Cow, of course, and the chickens spot Heavenly Hens flying all over the place. Henry is frustrated. Why don't the others see what he sees? In this charming companion to Henry's Map, David Elliot explores--with gentle humor--the nature of art and perception. A perfect book for kids and adults who love to find shapes among the stars or anywhere else their imaginations may lead. Praise for Henry's Map One of School Library Journal's Best Books in 2013! * With appealing characters and gentle humor, this book will be a hit at storytime, or as an introduction to mapping lessons. -- School Library Journal, starred review * Here's hoping for many more Henry-centric adventures. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review Elliot's barnyard animals brim with personality and emotion, matching the understated humor of this charming story. -- Publishers Weekly This story may even inspire budding cartographers to map their own world. -- Booklist
