Henry is a little boy who looks at the world differently and who struggles to have anything turn out the way he would like.
Then he meets Amy who does everything perfectly and a friendship blossoms as they help each other understand and enjoy the everyday.
This is an inspiring story about the importance and value in being different and how by being with people who see the world differently to us, we can gain a broader view of all our world has to offer.
I love the message this sends to kids (not a bad reminder for the adult reader either)... by marching to our own drum we enrich the world for others.
