"Harry and the Hot Lava" by Chris Robertson

Harry and the Hot Lava
by Chris Robertson

Harry and the Hot Lava is the latest release by Chris Robertson. It's perfect for children ages 3 to 8, especially boys. You can read my review below.
For another book by Chris Robertson, check out my blog post on My Yellow Umbrella.

Harry is a little boy with a big imagination. One day, a simple game of "don't step on the hot lava" turns into an adventure he'll never forget!
This children's picture book features the iconic art of Chris Robertson and has fun simple text perfect for beginning readers and storytime.

Harry is a little boy with a big imagination. (I wrote that before I read the book description, and I'm keeping it!) Join Harry as he battles his way through the perilous fields of lava. Who will save him?
Like the author's fabulous My Yellow Umbrella, Harry and the Hot Lava celebrates childhood imagination and play, but this time from a boy's point-of-view. And of course, boys love adventure. Full of the author-illustrator's wonderful images and graphics, this book is sure to become a favorite with your little guy ... or girl. Just out of interest, Harry is based on the author's son, and the author himself also makes an appearance.
Another winner!

About the Author
Chris Robertson is just a big kid at heart who happens to write and draw Children's Picture Books. While in elementary school, Chris was introduced to Curious George, Madeline, and Harry the Dirty Dog by way of the Bookmobile. The introduction left such a strong impression, that even at an early age, Chris knew children's books were going to be an important part of his life. Chris' whimsical cartoon style feels light-hearted and carefree which seems to perfectly match his humorous writing style.
Chris' books include the Amazon's Best Seller, I'll Trade My Peanut-Butter Sandwich, Little Miss Liberty, Kit and Kaboodle, The Tooth That's on the Loose!, Pandora's Box with Julia Dweck, and My Yellow Umbrella (which hit the #1 spot on Amazon's Bestseller list for Baby & Toddler Color Books, Bedtime and Dreaming, and Childrens' Game Books).
Chris lives in Pasadena with his wife and three boys.
