About the Book
This hilarious picture book, which offers an egg-cellent overview of the creative writing process for anyone who’s ever wanted to peck out a story, brings back the beloved protagonist of Souperchicken.
Henrietta loves to read so much she decides to write a book of her own. With the help of her three old aunties, she hatches a plot, gives her character lots of problems, and writes what she knows. 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?
Don’t miss the continuing adventures of Henrietta in THE BUK BUK BUK FESTIVAL!

“Henrietta decides that ‘writing books must be eggshilarating’. . . . It’s a funny picture book that could be used as a manual on writing.”
