A Friend Like Henry
'I sat down for a few minutes to skim through A Friend Like Henry"...Hours later, I was still there, with tears running down my cheeks - for the appalling difficulties faced in dealing with the condition and with officialdom, but most of all for the extraordinary devotion and empathy between the boy and his dog.

It is also a mother's painful search for love from a child' -- Herald
