Bawk Bawk BOOK !!

Henny has a very important announcement to make:


She is going to star in a BOOK!!
I'll be working with the wonderful people at Simon and Schuster's Paula Wiseman Books
to bring you her story :)
Henny is beside herself ...
I can't get her to settle down...she keeps flinging her arms around and jumping up and down!


We've got a lot of work to do...so for now, I'm going to have to make her sit on her hands for a while and calm down.  She's indicated to me that she's not happy with that idea...
She'd rather put on her party dress...

And keep on dancin'!!

And last, but not least...I want to say a big THANKS to my fabulous agent, Joanna Volpe
of Nancy Coffey Literary .  Joanna has truly been the wind beneath Henny's ...um...well,
you'll have to get the book when it comes out to find out more about that ;)
So Henny's ship is comin' in fast!
Thanks to all of you out there who have been keeping track of her.
There's lots more to come! Meanwhile, Henny's flyin' high!

  52. Wow, congratulations!!! I love Henny. Can't wait to read all about her :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Congratulations, Henny! I can well see that you might be totally chuffed. But do keep an eye on her indoors, her what sustains you; if you mess her about too much, she might clip your wings.

    E.R., I don't think California poppies are the same as Welsh poppies. We have California poppies too. Welsh poppies are perennial, wafer thin, transparent and always yellow (rarely yellowy-orangey) and they are the very devil in the garden, with thick fleshy roots.
