Henry Hikes to Fitchburg
Inspired by a passage from Walden, this story follows two friends who have very different approaches to life. When the two agree to meet one evening in Fitchburg, which is thirty miles away, each decides to get there in his own way. The two have drastically different journeys...with surprisingly similar results.
The Boston Globe-Horn Book Award and Ezra Jack Keats Writer Award winning Henry Hikes to Fitchburg is the first book in the Henry series.
