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.
Tagline: Henry, a nineteen-month-old Jack Russell, has been given the ability to talk and now they can't shut him up! Family Guy's Brian with just as much attitude but better sleuthing skills.
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'.
Thanks to Sarah at Book on the Brightside Tours and Morgen Bailey for my copy of the absolutely charming, Oh Henry! The first in the Henry Houdini series.
Henry as you may have guessed, is a Jack Russell , Who after being tested as a lab animal gains the ability to talk, and not just talk, he’s really rather clever and quick-witted with it to.
Burglary, dim-witted dognappers, and also at times quite emotional, especially when Harry, sorry Henry met Sally, and a clever mystery all make for an entertaining and enjoyable read.
Gwynne is a lovely character, and I enjoyed Dr moss aswell, they both clearly love their mischievous talking dog, and the criminals were something else!
The investigation really takes place to the end of this mystery and closes out with a clear promise of more adventures to come for Henry, and I’ll definitely be looking forward to joining Henry on those.
A book full of charm and humour, it was a really enjoyable read, I would recommend both to young adult readers as well as older readers. I think it’s a book that can be enjoyed by many as it’s just a lovely creation from Morgen Bailey.
