A boy, a magic book and a bossy boa - oh, and a VERY smelly gorilla! A fun and fast-paced illustrated chapter book for ages 6-8 from the international bestselling author of The Secret Lake. When Henry Haynes complains that his new book is boring he falls down into the story and finds himself eyeball to eyeball with Brian, a bossy boa constrictor who's in charge of a zoo escape.

Brian won't let Henry return home until he's released the animals, including three hungry lions and Gordon - the VERY smelly gorilla who masterminded the escape plan. To make matters worse, it looks as if Gordon's out to get Henry...Can Henry get home alive? And why didn't he just keep his big mouth shut about boring stories?

Includes the first two chapters of the hilarious page-turner 'Eeek! The Runaway Alien' for free!

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The story positively zips along with her customary fizz and verve, and the plot is both exciting and funny in equal measures. Karen has created a great lead character in Henry and I would love to see other stories about the same character. The fact is there aren't enough books out there like this. Not all children are up to tackling longer books, yet shorter stories can often be dull and one-dimensional. Not so with Henry Haynes. I would recommend this to any child from around six upwards...especially, dare I say it, to boys who are normally reluctant to pick up a book." -- Louise Jordan, Founder, The Writers' Advice Centre for Children's Books, Director Wacky Bee Books "Karen Inglis has done it again - a pacy short novel with engaging illustrations and short chapters which will attract young readers and get them turning the pages. Even reluctant readers will be keen to read on to find out how young Henry Haynes fares after falling into the adventure within his library book.I especially love the way the story is framed within Henry's trip to the library where he is slightly in awe of the knowing and kindly librarian. It's a great way to encourage children to visit their local library - and librarians everywhere will want to stock this book!" -- Debbie Young, Ambassador for Readathon Charity, UK
