Henry and Bea
Henry and Bea have always been inseparable…until one day Henry suddenly stops talking to Bea. He won't chat with her in class, and he won't sit with her at lunch. Bea can tell something's going on, and she's determined to find out what it is.
Then their teacher announces that the class is taking a field trip to a farm, and Bea hopes that this might be her chance to reconnect with Henry. When Henry finds an old cat collar at the farm and starts to cry, he finally reveals his secret to Bea: his cat Buddy died last week. And even though it's hard for both of them, Bea knows that she'll be there for Henry, as his best friend, no matter what.
Full-color illustrations were created with watercolor and pencil.
