“With a quiet humor and attention to natural settings, Johnson respectfully conveys Thoreau’s philosophy of simplicity.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
Does it still count as hard work if you are also having fun?
Without Henry the bear, inspired by Henry David Thoreau, wildflowers would go unwatered, rivers would have no crossing stones, and storms would come without warning. His friends try to convince him that he’s not “doing anything,” but Henry finds his work more rewarding than getting paid. Henry Works flows through morning’s mist to evening’s glow, when Henry’s most important work is revealed!
A celebration of nature and hard work that comes in many shapes and sizes.
