Henry and the Hidden Treasure is an imaginative adventure a young child has in defending his pocket money against his little sister. Henry constructs elaborate defensive measures that he is sure will stand up to the clever ambitions of Lucy. Little does he know, Lucy has a few tricks of her own.
With a focus on introducing children to the use of ordinal numbers, Henry and the Hidden Treasure also draws out some important qualities of being a kid – such as creativity, the value of listening to parental advice, and of course, being nice to your sister.

This is the second book I have read by this author and like the first book it doesn’t disappoint. The pictures are absolutely beautiful in their colour and detail serving to add to the overall experience of the book rather than detract from. The story itself was also well written and somewhat mysterious providing the reader with a sense and desire to finish reading it to find out what happens. The ending was really sweet (you’ll have to read the book to find out why) and warming to a mother’s heart. It is a very quick and easy read so it can be used to read yourself or to read to younger people who are too young to read for themselves. A very worthwhile read.
