“Henrietta the Hoose, the Goose who thought she was a Horse,” a new book by Katherine Paulette, unfolds in the grand manner of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of the ugly duckling. The story teaches a valuable lesson about acceptance and identity through an equally charming character named Henrietta.

It is the time of the year when birds need to travel to warmer climates. Henrietta, a grey and white goose, is lost and very tired and this is just the beginning of her troubles. When she miscalculates her landing, she hurts herself and ends up among horses and in the care of humans. At first, Henrietta is very indignant of her circumstances and is unhappy because nobody seems to realize that she is a goose. Over time she learns to appreciate her new friends and the food and care that are given to her. But winter ends and Henrietta, convinced that she is a horse, finds it difficult to leave. Will her sojourn finally end? Will she realize who she truly is? Find out the answer in this heartwarming tale with adorable animal characters and an unforgettable ending.

By turns humorous and heartwarming, “Henrietta the Hoose, the Goose who thought she was a Horse” is a story worth telling for generations to come.

“Henrietta the Hoose, the Goose who thought she was a Horse” will be featured at the 2012 National Education Association Book Exhibit in Washington, DC, which will run June 30 – July 2, 2012. For more information, log on to
