Pale Henry is the story of a young boy who has spent his whole life hidden away in his attic, afraid to go outside to play with the other children. Henry is gaunt and sickly from his head to his feet, haggard and thin and as white as a sheet. He spends all day staring longingly from his attic window, dreaming of playing in the sun with the local boys and girls. His only company is his pet cat and the spiders and moths that live in the attic. The Tiny Twisted Tales are a collection of short stories and poems from the rather strange mind of UK author and illustrator, Calvin Innes. Each Tiny Twisted Tale is a wonderfully macabre story about weird, scary, wonderfully gruesome characters, from people who eat bugs, to tiny toga-wearing goblins. Each book is packed with dozens of Calvin's quirky illustrations. The Tiny Twisted Tales each have a moral to teach the reader, wrapped up in a silly, twisted, creepy and funny way. A short, humorous rhyming story about a boy who is afraid to go outside to play with the other children who live on his street. He has spent his whole life hidden away in the dark, dusty loft with no friends other than his pet cat. The book shows children to make an effort to make friends and to play with others, but also to not worry about being different or a little strange. You are who you are and you should be proud of it. The book is intended to encourage children to be themselves, even if it's not how everybody else around them is.
