Join Henrietta Ham and her friend Tanya in their exciting, heart-warming and educational outdoor adventures!


Book Excerpt

..... Suddenly, one of the hams begins to jiggle and jumps to her feet. She calls out, "Henrietta!" as she nudges the other ham.
Wiggling to get free, Henrietta exclaims, "Tanya, look at all the fruits stuck to you!"
Tanya plucks off a cherry and pops it into her mouth. "Mmm, tasty." Then Tanya says, "You look like one of those hams that comes in a can! We don't look human anymore!"
Momma Terri, hearing the commotion, starts after the jiggling and wiggling hams in the pan.
"Run!" cries Henrietta.
"Before we get cooked for dinner!" shouts Tanya...........
