When Henry Caught Imaginitis by Nick Bland

Henry is a very serious boy.  His room is always neat and he always buttons his shirt right to the top.  But lately Henry has been having thoughts that don’t make any sense, thoughts about pirates, dragons and rocket ships.  Henry has caught imaginitis – and the only cure is to grow up.  But what should Henry do in the meantime?

The grade twos really enjoyed this story about the creative power of imagination. The illustrations were very similar to ‘A Monster Wrote Me a Letter’ with detailed black and white drawings using touches of colour to highlight Henry’s imaginary thoughts.  We used the story to spark our own imaginations.  We talked about all the silly thoughts that sometimes pop into our heads then used pencil and crayon to illustrate these thoughts.
