Author(s): David Elliot
A super-cute, fun picture book about an adorable pig called Henry; it also serves as a delightful introduction to maps that teachers and parents will love! Henry is a very particular sort of pig, who believes there's 'a place for everything and everything in its place'. But when he looks out the window, he's troubled. The farm is a mess! So he decides to draw a map to show everyone exactly where they belong. He takes a journey through the farm with his friends as he draws the map: sheep in the woolshed; chickens in the coop; horse in the stable. Award-winning writer and illustrator David Elliott crafts a lovely comic ending which children will work out long before Henry does.
