The Lovereading4Kids comment

Henrietta and her dog frank couldn’t be more different! Henrietta can think of a million and one things she’d like to do when she grows up from making ice cream to being a mechanic. Frank only wants one thing: sausages. The contrast is amusingly shown; Henrietta’s hectic thinking flows across the pages while Frank’s simple thought of sausages is reflected in more images of sausages than you can imagine. Luckily, by the end, they have come up with one thing they could do together…

Synopsis

Stargazers, Skyscrapers and Extraordinary Sausages by Claudia Boldt

Henrietta has all sorts of wild ambitions, but unfortunately Frank, her dog, can only think about sausages. Will they be able to come to a compromise and find an activity that suits both of them?

Reviews

Little Henrietta has plans of grandeur when it comes to what she will do when she grows up: first she wants to make ice-cream, then climb skyscrapers as well as being a superdancer amongst other things
