Harry was born with no left hand. When he got to school, the kids asked him what was wrong with his arm. "Nothing," said Harry. "That's my prosthesis."

Harry's hand didn't keep him from being a good baseball player -- or a good friend. Harry and Willy and Carrothead are three of the most real kids you are apt to meet between book covers, and you will like them as much as they like each other!

About the Author:

Judith Caseley says, "When I was a little girl, I fell in love with Abraham Lincoln. I was drawn to the kindness and melancholy I saw in his face. My sister Jean and I prayed to a framed portrait of him that hung on our bedroom wall. To this day, when I see Lincoln's likeness on the wall of a school auditorium, my heart lifts with gladness or my eyes fill with tears. I remember the fierce secrets we told him, the joys and sorrows that were for his ears only. It was a private act of communion, and we called him A. L."

Judith Caseley is the author-artist of such favorite picture books as On the Town: A Community Adventure; Bully; Mama, Coming and Going; and Dear Annie. She lives on Long Island, New York, with her two children.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- As a book encouraging self-respect among children despite physical differences, this is a commendable effort. Born without a left hand, Harry is, in the words of a schoolmate, "just a regular kid." He enjoys the same games, and his matter-of-fact responses to other children's questions soon satisfy their curiosity. He makes friends with a redheaded boy named Oscar, and when another classmate calls him "Carrothead," Harry jumps to his defense. In one of those quick social changes common among school children, the three boys become best friends. The emphasis is on the similiarity of the boys, and the portrayal of Harry carries a clear message that even people who are considered disabled can be capable and self-assured. The story is weakened, however, by a lack of tension that fails to make it emotionally involving. Caseley's cheerful and inviting full-color cartoons depict a multiracial suburban setting. An accessible, attractive, and positive character portrayal. --Danita Nichols, New York Public Library
