Hypnosis Harry By Catherine Bailey, Illustrated by Sarita Rich
Award-Winning Finalist in the Children's Picture Book: Hardcover Fiction category of the 2016 Best Book Awards

No pajamas at the park. No toys in the toaster. Harry’s parents say no to everything! That is, until Harry learns about hypnosis.

With a little practice, and Grandpa’s watch, Harry puts his parents in a trance and envisions a future full of fun and yes’s!

Comic books by the crate, night-vision goggles for his teddy bear, a pet monkey (or two)—no request is too big or too bizarre. Harry loves his new freedom and, not to mention, all that bacon. So what if his robot goes rogue and playmates are hard to find? But when his ninja moves result in a playground pile-up, Harry starts to wonder if he really wants his every wish granted.

Hypnosis Harry is a wildly funny, sweetly silly look at the real meaning of the word no. Children will delight as little Harry answers the delicious question: What would you do if you could do anything? This charming romp is perfectly captured in the lively, layered illustrations of Sarita Rich. Each read reveals clever new details, making this the perfect reread for parent and child.

About the author

Catherine Bailey’s prior job titles include lawyer (interesting), sailboat deckhand (fun but occasionally sea-sicky), and Cartoon Network intern (best job ever, besides writing). Her hobbies include reading, 1980s movies, and travel. She’s the author of the upcoming picture books Mind Your Monsters and Lucy Loves Sherman. She resides in Stuart, Florida, with her husband and three children.

Sarita Rich grew up in northern Alaska spending afternoons snowed in, decorating the living room walls with abstract compositions in purple crayon. Once, she may or may not have been caught warming her Barbies in the toaster. Later, she became a middle school English teacher and then studied children’s book illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. She lives with her husband and daughter in New Haven, Connecticut.
