This warm, funny story, with its vivid and original illustrations will strike a chord in the hearts of all children as well as impart an important lesson about the value of everyone's talents. Henry wakes full of the joy of life, but the other creatures don't like his singing. They make so much noise that the maker asks what all the fuss is about. When told, he asks them to tell him by the next day what their voices are for. The creatures practise a song, but they won't let Henry join in. When the maker hears their song, he asks why Henry is not singing. Henry says he can't sing. But that is definitely not the end of the matter..."Any teacher with an unpopular child in his/her class will appreciate this book. It highlights that everybody has different talents...This is a story that could easily be used with a class and would aid RE and PSE teaching. Highly recommended." ACT, Digest, Spring 2000 'Sue Hendra's vibrant illustrations are enormously entertaining. This clever tale can be enjoyed at various levels and is a must for anyone who is tone-deaf!' Practical Pre-School, May 2000
