I Am Henry Finch By Alexis Deacon Illustrated by Viviane Schwarz

Every now and then a picture book collaboration comes along that is really exciting: Mac Barnet & Jon Klassen; Lemony Snicket & Jon Klassen; Mac Barnet & Christian Robinson.

Currently, Alexis Deacon & Viviane Schwarz, two outstanding picture book creators. Beegu by Alexis Deacon is one of my all time favourite picture books.

I Am Henry Finch is a blindingly brilliant book about courage and making a difference. It’s a picture book for the young philosopher. As Descartes famously said, ‘I think, therefore I am’ or was that Henry Finch? The philosophical proof of existence based on the fact that something capable of any form of thought necessarily exists.

Henry Finch is an inspiration to all other ambitious winged creatures that strive for greatness.
