Henry Haynes and The Great Escape is a fun black and white illustrated story for ages 6-8 about a boy who falls inside his library book and gets caught up in a zoo escape that’s been masterminded by Gordon, a rather smelly gorilla…!
This fun and fast-paced page-turner with short chapters is aimed at early readers from age 6 as well as slighter older ones looking for a quick and entertaining read.
Here’s the all-important back cover blurb 🙂
Once again I worked with my Bosnian illustrator, Damir Kundalić, who pulled out all the stops to come up with the fun illustrations of Brian, the bossy boa constrictor who’s been put in charge of the escape, as well as Gordon and all the other animals in the story. Here are a couple of taster illustrations 🙂
And here’s a short fun video I made for the book before the cover update 🙂
