    Henry Reed is the main character and narrator of a series of five children’s novels by Keith Robertson. The first four novels were illustrated by Robert McCloskey but he declined to handle the last one because production of the fourth disappointed him deeply. — Wikipedia

    The jackets for the first four novels by Viking Press are all set in caps from Lydian.
