Henrietta really is a great go-getter, and thank goodness, because she and her friends have an absolute emergency dilemma to attend to. The Rietta is a spotty kind of creature that hoots when it's happy, but the one in Henrietta's bedroom is so lost and sad its spots have started to fade.
Martine Murray lives in Australia. She started writing because she thought it would be a good idea to learn a practical skill like typing. Even now, she'd still like to find a normal job one day, so she can buy a new car with air conditioning. Martine spends her spare time walking with dogs, hanging upside down in the park, playing with her new daughter and making things up. She'd like to be a bit of a go-getter herself. She is the author of the critically acclaimed children's novels CEDAR B. HARTLEY UPSIDE DOWN and CEDAR B. HARTLEY FLYING HIGH. HENRIETTA (there's no one better) was her young-fiction debut. This is the second Henrietta book and there should be more from her soon.
