Set in Northamptonshire, England… Henry, a talking Jack Russell, is part of a small team researching a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. He is the target of several dognappers but can he use his wit or guile to outwit them and, with the help of forty-year-old laboratory assistant Gwynne Davies, find the proof needed to convict the criminals. Thus begins a series of adventures for the unlikely pair. There have been amateur sleuths, there have been talking animals – Henry is both. This is Family Guy’s Brian meets Poirot meets My Fair Lady.
USP: There have been amateur sleuths, there have been talking animals – Henry is both.
‘Oh, Henry’ may look like a young adult or children’s novel but the main human character is a woman in her early forties so a more general appeal. ‘For the young in all of us’.

This book was definitely not what I expected. It was strange which of course I always like. Strange person that I am.
This book has some science fiction and fantasy elements as simple dogs don’t talk. I do love the premise of this book and saw a lot of great potential in this type of book.
The only thing I would change was the dog breed as not fond of jack russels. I would have loved to see more of this including more novels with this style.
The author is so strong in her writing and can write so many different style of books that you will find something you just love.
