A fantasy children's book intended for infants and toddlers, Flying Henry follows the story of a baby who develops a magical ability to fly. Aware of his rare gift, he soars through his home, into nature, and unfamiliar places, testing the limits of his new skill by examining the world around him from the sky and embarking on great adventures. But, eventually Henry grows lonely and has to learn a very important secret about flying in order to fully enjoy his gift.
Realistic looking flight rendered by artist Rachel Hulin with the willing support of her son, Henry, is an exceptional addition to the genre of photographic children's books and will appeal to adults as well.
