Henry and the cow problem / written by Iona Whishaw ; illustrated by Chum McLeod.
New York : Annick Press, c199.
Unpaged: col. ill.
Henry Williams’s bedtime fear is that a cow will come in his bedroom window on the third floor of his city apartment building. His mother’s attempts to relieve his anxiety are matched by his imaginative reasons as to how the bovine could succeed. For instance, the animal might be disguised as a window washer. As their conversation progresses, Henry’s mother promises to leave the light on and her door open so she will hear a cow come in. With this sign of support, the little boy begins to think a little more rationally and finally falls asleep. An upbeat, offbeat conversation-starter about fears.
