Great art and Suspense. Harry runs away toward wild adventures but lost everyone he loves, unless he finds a way make it home again!

This is one of my favorite classic picture books. Margaret Bloy Graham's lively and sweet illustrations bring the story and Harry to life. Though the recommended age range is 4-8 years old, dog lovers who are older will enjoy it as well. Warning: I recommend this book for children (and adults) who already have a dog or have families that are willing to adopt one! It seems possible to me that everyone who reads it will love Harry and need a dog of their own.

Harry loves everything but baths. What to do when he returns home dirty and his family doesn’t know who he is?

My favourite was Harry. He got all dirty and ran away. He had a bath.

Playing is fun. Playing in the dirt can be especially fun, but what if you don't like to get clean after play?...Harry discovered that sometimes it's good idea to get scrubbed. White or black, it's easy to fall in love with Harry, no matter what colour he is.
