Clocks and More Clocks

As someone who grew up in a house where none of the clocks had the right time, I find this book of Henry’s especially funny.

Pat Hutchins 1970

Poor Mr. Higgins keeps running up and down stairs and buying more clocks trying to determine the accurate time. He gets a pocket watch in the end and that solves everything.  The illustrations are pure 70's!

  1. I was just telling TJ the other day how I never knew the right time when I was at your house, but all of you knew just how many minutes each clock was off by! And the funny thing was, you all said that even though you all knew the clocks were wrong, it still helped you to get out the door faster. Weirdos.
