"Oh Henry" is a series of short stories recounting the misadventures of Henry Wilcox, a schoolboy living in a small English village during the years following the end of World War Two. The stories, written from the boy's point of view, start with Henry, a preschooler, instigating an accidental case of arson, and end seven years later with him learning of his family's plan to emigrate. In the interim the reader will share Henry's angst and appreciate his growing maturity as he attempts to deal with precocious girls, the practical jokes of his Uncle Steve, and the demands of the local sporting scene.
