About this title


Henrietta is an unusual looking bird who loves to play and explore the world around her. But when a pair of mischievous raccoons start making fun of her and spreading lies, all the other woodland animals come to believe what the raccoons have to say. Henrietta wonders why she is so different from all the other animals, and even starts to believe there's something wrong with her appearance. She is befriended by Seymour the bat while being shunned by the other animals, but in the end it's the telling of the truth and the wisdom of a wise old turtle that makes this beautifully illustrated and written story come to life. Only One Henrietta explores friendship, loyalty and the importance of seeing each person as distinct with his or her own qualities. The story will reassure any child who has ever felt lonely or different that each of us has something inside that is unique and special, too.

From the Publisher:

This book is based on a real bird named Henrietta who lives at a bird park in Missouri. Henrietta is an Abyssinian Ground Hornbill (Bucorvus abyssinicus). She is native to Africa.

The author, Lisa Land, is one of Henrietta's regular playmates. Because Henrietta is regularly in educational programs at the bird park, she is used to her handlers and enjoys interacting with them. She loves to play catch and fetch. Henrietta stands about three feet tall and has a four foot wingspan.
