Henrietta loves to read. When she clucks buk, buk, buk at the library, the librarian knows exactly what to recommend. Then Henrietta decides to write a book. With the help of her three aunties, she hatches a plot. But when Henrietta publishes her story, the critics say she's laid an egg! Is this the end of Henrietta's career as an author?
Mary Jane and Herm Auch have collaborated on more than ten picture books written by Mary Jane. Both artists used digital techniques to create the illustrations in this book. The Auchs live outside of Rochester, New York, and keep a small flock of chickens.

Editorial Reviews

"Henrietta decides that 'writing books must be eggshilarating'....It's a funny picture book that could be used as a manual on writing."
