henry's bright idea
Deep in the shade of a walnut grove stands a tall tree house, where a delightful group of friends called the Walnut Animal Society gathers. Their mission is to create and to always remain curious. Henry the Fox is known for his unique inventions. Margaux the Kitty’s many books are filled with her stories and poems. Ruthie the Deer loves to dance like the butterflies. The ropes and fishing poles belong to adventurous Chester the Raccoon. Magnolia the Bunny makes maps of the places she’s explored. And Eleanor the Bear gathers flowers and plants to make tea for her friends.
Today Henry is not inventing or tinkering. Henry has lost his idea. Follow Henry and his friend Eleanor as they search for Henry’s lost idea and discover much more. This charming picture book, the first in a series, is reminiscent of such classics as Winnie the Pooh and illustrated in a rich, vintage palette.
