Not bad, but just didn't do anything for me. Some children will love it. I tried two Henry books and have only this much to say about both. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688089836, Hardcover)

What's so cute about a little brown dog, anyway? And why does everyone think tie's so clever just because he can catch a ball in his mouth? That's what Henry wants to know!

When The Man brings home a new puppy named Buttons, the spunky Siamese is no longer the center of attention. But he'll show them. Yow-meowl! Isn't he the best hind-leg walker on four feet?

So Henry climbs a tree, stretches his whiskers for balance, and starts to tightrope-walk along a branch. But nobody is impressed -- until Buttons gets himself into a fix and only an aerial artist like Henry can save him.

Mary Calhoun's gently humorous story and Erick Ingraham's breathtaking illustrations combine in a rollicking picture-book adventure that will delight the feline daredevil's countless fans.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:21:22 -0400)

Although Henry the cat learns tightrope walking only to impress the humans in his family, who have stopped paying attention to him because of their new puppy, his skill comes in handy when the puppy gets stranded on a high ledge.
