This was a cute read. Mrs Pinkelmeyer was great when a woman called from NY to England. Obviously she called the wrong number, but Mrs Pinkelmeyer was nice and eased Henry's mind he was upset that his parents were away and was lonely for them. After their little talk about baths, cooking etc Henry has stopped being upset and was happy. This book is great for kids who's parents are leaving for a short time and how they can make it through that time.
