Harry, an expert in getting out of what he doesn't want to do, becomes different Harry-characters, but one day carries it a little too far

Harry is a master of disguises; he can avoid almost any unpleasant situation by turning himself into something else. With baby-sitters, he's Harrylion, jumping on furniture, overturning the television set and getting his own way. As Harryfish, he can swim to his heart's delight and never has to wash his ears, because he hasn't any to wash. At first his disguises are handy; but then he discovers the flip side, a moment in which he "forgets himself" and loses his identity. Harry realizes that it's a lonely world when family and friends can't find him. The philosophical point may be too abstract for readers at the younger end of the proposed age range; the comic illustrations and the happy outcome (Harry in his parents' arms), however, make the story's sentiments quite real. Ages 3-6.
