Children’s Author Katharine Stanley-Brown Abbott Releases Third Book

1888 PressRelease – Henrietta is a whimsical story about a curious and brave woodchuck.

MANCHESTER, Mass. – Author Katharine Stanley-Brown Abbott has teamed up again with Vermont artist Kristin Richland for Henrietta, a whimsical story about a curious and resourceful woodchuck and a sweet little girl named Lily. Richland’s illustrations help bring Abbott’s heartwarming tale about friendship to life.

The adventure begins with Henrietta finding a beautiful garden and eating some of the vegetables. As the story develops, Henrietta’s curiosity leads to upsetting Lily’s mother, an overnight stay in a scary trap and an interaction with a hungry fox. Through it all, Henrietta learns about bravery, honesty, friendship and appreciating help from others. The end brings a surprise reward for Henrietta from her new friend Lily.

Now 94 years old, Abbott has created a charming book perfect for all readers. Abbott’s inspiration for “Henrietta” came when she saw a little woodchuck nibbling lettuce in her vegetable garden.

“This story nearly wrote itself,” says Abbott. “I hope readers have as much fun meeting Henrietta as I did writing her story.”

The book can be purchased in SDP Publishing, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other retailers.
