Henry with an Eye by John Skinner
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This work is intended for ages 12-16. When Henry discovers the magic of painting, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for. He does not think a lot of Henri Matisse, but he finds Henri Rousseau a revelation. His observation that so many of the great artists seem to share the same first name with him, except for that last tiny letter, he decides to write his own name with an i. What he does not realise at first is that the secret to his artistic talents lies not so much in the letter i as in the mind's eye. But when Henry eventually appreciates what a very special eye he has, it is already too late. And it gets him into a whole lot of trouble.

Author Biography

Born in the South-West of England, John Skinner left the UK in the 'eighties with his family to settle in Switzerland. As the family grew, he watched his children drift steadily into the local Swiss dialect. And he could not shake off a keen sense of needing to help them retain an interest in the language they had left behind. So he began to write stories for them.
