Book Review: Henrietta Hen – In Trouble Again by Özgen Halil

The problem with Henrietta Hen is she's not so gentle. She's loud and nosey and she has a habit of getting into trouble.

A delightful tale about an eccentric Hen and her Goofy friend (Dotty Donkey) on a berry picking adventure, but they run into some trouble on the way. Will their friends come to their rescue?

A real emphasis on friendships and caring for one another. A book full of fun and hilarious characters, just to mention some of them, there's the firefly-loving Frog, Stinky Pinky Pig who is looking for her wig, and Mousey Mouse, who lives at the Well House. And we can't forget Fakey Fox, Henrietta's always-hungry arch nemesis.

Eve’s Book Review

The story line is cute, but I love the illustrations. They are done in pop-ups with bright colors and great facial features on the animals.

Just right reading time for naps or bed time. The story will keep the little ones interested in what is happening.

About the Reviewer

Eve Culley at Mustard Seed Sentinel

As a children’s author, I am blessed to live in the imaginary world of Barn Town where the animals talk and share their lives with me. I believe that I have the best job there is. Another joy I have is reading other children’s authors and sharing their work with you. Read a book and share the joy with others.

Storytelling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that as I tell stories, putting them on paper, it makes room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon. I write for children because of their wonderful imaginations. They are the very best at believing that the probable can become possible. Nothing is any better than when the reader climbs into the adventure and joins the journey with you.
