When too little is known and too much is feared, we turn to books. In the spirit of providing much-needed solace comes Henry & the White Wolf, an illustrated storybook-and poignant allegory--to help kids who are sick, or kids with friends who are sick, or kids whose parents or siblings or teachers are sick.
What makes the simple, straightforward story especially comforting and so close to a child's point of view is that it is written and illustrated by a teenage brother and sister who draw not only on their own feelings of being in the hospital, but the experience of offering support to close friends with serious illnesses. It is this spirit that inspired the authors to package with the book a soft, round stone for every child to hold-just like the talismanic stone in the story that Henry, the little sick hedgehog, must hold onto while undergoing the debilitating treatment offered up by the fearsome White Wolf. No matter how bad it gets, Henry clutches his stone for dear life-literally-and it reminds him that the dignity and courage he needs to get better are always with him.
