Care of Henry by Anne Fine
Published by Walker Books Ltd., 1997
ISBN 0-7445-5258-3
Illustrations © Paul Howard, 1996

The Sprinters Series from Walker books offers more confident readers a range of humour-driven stories.

Care of Henry is one title in the series written by Anne Fine who held the position of Children's Laureate in the UK from 2001 to 2003.

The story deals in a light-hearted, humorous way with what could be a sensitive issue for Hugo, who has to decide who to stay with while mother’s having a baby. A major deciding factor will be who can take the best care of his dog, Henry as well.

“Branded with the Sprinters logo, the titles in this series all have their own distinctive jackets and work equally well as stand-alone books and as part of the series.”
The Children’s Bookseller, 15 August 2003.
