Perry Has An Official Book: Henry Loves Hills
Henry Loves Hills is Perry's official book written by Perry native Patrick E. Brennan in response to a competition organized by Read Around Perry, a Rotary-initiated community literacy program with support from the Town of Perry Bicentennial Committee in 2014. It tells the story of a school bus, named Henry, who negotiates the beautiful rolling hills of Perry bringing children to and from school everyday.
Henry, and driver Ed, confront and overcome their biggest challenge taking readers on a trip through a major snow storm. Sally Snowplow helps out.
Brennan, who graduated from PCS, based Henry Loves Hills on his experience of a bus ride during the infamous Blizzard of 1977. Dan Butler, a Village of Perry resident and 2015 Perry Chalk Art Festival featured artist, is the illustrator.
