Henrietta has her second adventure – she is having a party! What does General Eight Legs eat for dinner? Who is mean to Henrietta? What is Africa like? Come into the garden and find out!
In this book, Henrietta enjoys her friends, learns more about the world outside the garden, and encounters adventure. We meet some more characters, including Adeola – a fun-loving parakeet eager to share stories from her homeland, Africa, and Pierre and Manon – two friendly French frogs. We also see how Henrietta shows kindness that is not returned, and how she stays herself despite this and feeling upset. And we see the value of not jumping to judgements even when something uncomfortable happens. How do you feel about General Eight Legs after reading this book? And Henrietta? Enjoy it best by reading out loud and following the illustrations!
