Henrietta’s two older sisters do such a good job of convincing her that she is a chicken that Henrietta decides she really IS a chicken and goes to find a chicken farm to live on. Her sisters get in trouble when Mom and Dad find out what happened and the older sisters are put in charge of getting Henrietta back home.
