Henry, the Owl Who Says Why?Jeff Tully and Wrigley Rose Tully A world without questions is a world without possibilities

“Henry, the Owl Who Says, Why?” was written by father/daughter team, Jeff Tully and his six-year-old ‘Question Machine”, Wrigley.

This bedtime book combines cheeky humor, hip hop style rhyme schemes, and learning about animals – wrapped up in a heartwarming story. Henry is the only owl who says, "Why?" In fact, he says it so much that it gets him into a little bit of trouble. In the end though, it gets him out of trouble too.

Henry is the embodiment of every child 3-7 years old who never stops asking questions. In the process, Henry learns about all the wildlife around him. If your little one loves "Wild Kratts" and other animal discovery shows, they'll love hearing Henry learn "Why" all the forest creatures do what they do. Take your child on a trip through the forest that asks questions like “Why do porcupines have quills and why do hummingbirds hum?” Eventually, Henry even finds out the hard way why the fox is described as "sly." Don't worry, he out-foxes the fox in the nick of time.

This was written to be a bedtime story, it has laughs and some thrills and a few characters for Dad to practice his acting. It's a journey that has humor and goes out on a heartwarming note. Little eyelids will be drooping by the end - until the next night when your little “Question Machine” will be asking to read it all over again.

A portion of the proceeds of this book will go to the foundation “Actors and Others for Animals”, a California non-profit corporation dedicated to the promotion of the humane treatment of animals.

“Actors and Others for Animals” is a California non-profit corporation dedicated to the promotion of the humane treatment of animals. A portion of the proceeds of this book will go to that foundation in the names of our pals, Fred & Mary Willard.

Susan Brown

@sbrown9710

Fantasy and adventure! Writer, teacher, gardener, traveler and border collie wrangler, Susan Brown started writing in high school, imagining what might be happening in the big wide world and other possible places. Eventually she began publishing her stories with Scholastic and Atheneum, even turning one into a short-lived TV show.

Susan Brown writes a mix of YA fantasy (dragons and mythological beings straying into ordinary life) and realistic fiction about the problems real kids deal with.

The day to day part of Susan Brown’s life involves teaching high school, writing whenever she can, supervising three grown daughters, assorted sons-in-law and spoiling two amazing grandsons.  Some of Susan’s books use her own home as the background for her imaginary characters – characters that have come to seem so real to her, that she feels like they are living there too!

Not Yet Summer is available in paperback, Kindle and Kobo, as well as other ebook platforms.
