A Tiny Twisted Tale with a little bit of a dark side and message to all the children, who hide away from the world and their fears.
Pale Henry doesn't go outside. He even stays out of the sunlight. Henry hides away in the loft with spiders, moths and his books. Then one day he overcomes his fear and decides to face everything he is scared of and goes outside. Outside the world is full of fun, sunshine and friends.
