A fantasy children's book intended for infants and toddlers, Flying Henry
follows the story of a baby who develops a magical ability to fly. Aware of his rare gift, he soars through his home, into nature, and unfamiliar places testing the limits of his new skill by examining the world around him from the sky and embarking on great adventures. But, eventually he learns he'd rather keep his flights closer to home until he's bigger.
Realistic looking flight rendered by artist Rachel Hulin with the willing support of her son, Henry, is an exceptional addition to the genre of photographic children's books and will appeal to adults as well. Flying Henry
is a unique combination of the artfully posed adorable baby classic, as seen in Anne Geddes work, and Jason Lee's quirky and hilarious internet-famous photographs of his daughters.
