Author(s): Julia Hubery
Henry will do anything to win the hand of his beloved Carmelita. He is inventive and determined, and nothing is going to stand in his way. Except maybe a niggling feeling that something is not quite right. This is a rollicking tale about wanting what you have, rather than having what you want, by international favourite Julia Hubery and award-winning Lucia Masciullo.
