Holly Henry, an author who loves reading with her kids and particularly love books about dogs, has recently completed her new book “My Furry Brother”: a fascinating account that encourages the readers to widen their love not only for people around them but also for animals.
Holly, who resides in Orange, said, “Jake is a nine-year-old boy who hopes to one day have a brother. One day his wish comes true, but not in the way he expects. He now has a furry brother to share his life with. His furry brother is a fun-loving Belgian Malinois who keeps Jake on his toes. Dogs are more than just pets; they are part of your family.”
The book is the first of what Henry plans to make into a series saying, “books two and three have been written.”
Henry said the process of putting her first book together took almost a year. “It was a long process. We had to find an illustrator and get everything approved but it was worth it. I’m proud of the final product.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Henry’s new book is an eye-gaping reminder to young readers that all forms of life deserve to be loved no matter how small or big it is. In this book, the author wants the readers to realize that animals, too, can be part of the family and be one’s brother or sister.
Readers can purchase “My Furry Brother” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble. There are also books for purchase at the Pink Rooster in West Orange and there is a copy at the Orange Public Library.
