Henrietta and The Perfect Night, is the perfect stepping stone book for when you are ready to advance from picture books for your pre-school/early school aged kids.
Recommended for ages 5 - 8, it presents more of a challenge as they need to rely on their attention to hear the story - rather than solely on pictures.
The story revolves around Henrietta, who will soon be getting a baby brother or sister.
She wonders about what the bump in her mum's tummy may be. She hopes it is a girl, so that she can dress her up in different sorts of hats!
Meanwhile, Henrietta has also just started school and when she says a girl in her class crying, she embarks on a rescue mission and finds that sometimes, one friend in a room of strangers is all you need to be happy.
This a very funny and thoughtful book, that will have curious little minds absorbed in what happens next.
