Meet Harry, a downhearted little dog who is saddened by the stares and laughter of others who only see his horrible hair. When his friend Miss Maggie knits him a handsome sweater to hide his messy hair, Harry quickly gains confidence. But when disaster strikes and his patchy hair is once again revealed, Harry wonders if others will ever see him for what he’s like on the inside―not just the outside.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Harry is so embarrassed by his straggly, patchy hair. When he goes out people point and laugh and it hurts his feelings. His owner, a kind old lady knits him a sweater – but when they sweater rips she thinks of something else!! Watch as Harry finds the perfect people to visit and love him for him. This is such an adorable story about a little dog that finds out that even though some people may not adore him – others will and that’s all that matters. They illustrations are stunning – and personally I LOVE Harry’s unmanageable hair!

About The Author

Cocci’s appreciation for telling stories began early in her teaching career. By capturing the interest of her students through storytelling and songs, she embraced her desire to encourage an appreciation and love for literacy. Her first book, Henry the Hungry Hound, relives the mischievous antics of her beloved dog, Henry, and a kind old woman who devises a clever plan to end his bad behavior. Cocci continues to enjoy writing stories that encompass valuable life lessons. She has published several lessons and articles on educational websites and enjoys author visits, both in the classroom and online. Cocci earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Kutztown University and an Orff Schulwerk Music Certification from the University of Arts in Philadelphia. In addition to writing, she teaches early childhood music and piano independently. She lives with her husband, son, and Molly, her lovable pup, in Reading, Pennsylvania.
