Henry learned his lasting love of books at his mother's knee when she read him tales of adventure, mystery and heroism. One day, while he was searching in his favorite library, he found an old dusty, battered book that looked intriguing. But when he pulled it from the shelf and opened the cover, he got a huge surprise that he was least expecting! Out popped Poe, a bookworm with a love of books as strong as his. Henry took the book and Poe home and since that day, they have been the closest of friends, reading their way through many fine books, sharing laughter, tears and life. It matters not that one is a bear and one is a worm!
