Henry! the highly imaginative first grader is back with a new problem. After tangling with the school secretary in his debut picture book Henry! you’re late AGAIN! he reveals another common problem. He is hungry AGAIN and AGAIN! He eats but why doesn’t he get big and strong when he eats?
Junk food is the culprit.
It’s chips and cupcakes for breakfast and LOTS of fries for lunch. When it comes to snacks Henry’s polka-dotted-underwear-loving sister kindly supplies him with a stash of yummy candy.
But Henry’s slow slide into the junk food pit isn’t his problem alone. Henry’s whole family is being sucked into the pit too and he is shocked to see what goes on in the teacher’s lounge after school hours! The shocking revelation catapults Henry into action to save everyone from a slow descent into the grips of junk food.
