About the Author:

Henrietta was born into a very large family and spent her early years exploring the walls and attics of a variety of different houses. This early taste for adventure has led her into many long-distance expeditions, during which she has become an expert on big cats as well as an authority on cheeses of the world. Though her tail and her paw prints may have been spotted before, this is her first tale to appear in print.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- As the book opens, readers look down upon a marmalade cat lying on the floor. The brief, rhyming story that unfolds is told by a mouse, Henrietta, shown scurrying behind the feline's back. It seems that she has not been invited to a birthday party, but she intends to go anyway. She challenges readers to follow. Each double-page spread is a visual feast, featuring overhead photographs that look down on all sorts of things, many of which are shaped like mice--toys, candy, gardening paraphernalia, party favors and refreshments, clothing, and much more. As Henrietta travels from page to page, she leaves behind a trail of tiny footprints. Every now and then, there is a hint that the cat is on her trail. Children will pore over each page, trying to see how many of the mouse items they can spy, including Henrietta. The oversized format and colorful photos make this book a natural choice for sharing with a group of children. A successful ``look and find'' adventure that will appeal to the young fans of Handford's Where's Waldo . --Laura Culberg, Harold Washington Library Center, Chicago
