What happens when two young girls tour a canned ham factory with their parents and accidentally fall into a chute? They become living canned hams! Luckily the decision by the parents of one of them to purchase a couple of canned hams at the factory store near the end of the tour turns out to be a life-saving act for the girls. When Momma Terri decides to fix the hams for Sunday dinner, Henrietta and her friend Tanya begin to jiggle on the tray covered with pineapple and cherries. Jumping off the tray, they run outside to play and get in a canoe on the pond. What kind of adventures do the two ham-shaped human children have with a carp, ducks, a great blue heron, and bees? And can canned hams swim? Author Donna Raheb has certainly come up with a unique idea for a children's book. Youngsters will laugh at the obviously improbable premise of the story, and they will enjoy both the exciting adventures that Henrietta and Tanya have and the full page color illustrations by Bill Dougal which well portray the action. Also, they will appreciate the girls' joy in being outside, free, and alive after being cooped up in their cans. In addition, there are some practical lessons to be learned, such as always wearing a life vest to be safe in the water, and interesting information about the different wildlife that the girls encounter. Meet Henrietta and other books in The Adventures of Henrietta Ham series should prove welcome additions to the world of children's books.
