Henry the Castaway

Henry and his dog, Laird Angus McAngus, were fearless explorers. One morning they set out to find an ocean. They took along Henry's explorer's kit and a special new flag from an old shirt.

"It may be a long and dangerous trip," he told his mother as they left.

"I hope it won't take all day," she said.

"Who knows?" replied Henry. "It could take a year!"

And it might have. For like many explorers of oceans, Henry and Angus were cast up on island with no escape. But good explorers are prepared for everything. And these two proved more than equal to the dangers they met, though there were some very tough moments.

Henry the Explorer
45th Anniversary Edition

On the night of the blizzard, Henry and Angus, read an exciting book about exploring. And the next morning Henry assembled his equipment for the trip: lunch and flags for claiming all that he planned to discover. Exploring is hard work, and sometimes, although explorers do not get lost, they are not quite sure which way to go. All of which makes Henry's exploring worth reading about.

Henry Explores the Jungle

Once Henry and his dog, Laird Angus McAngus (Angus for short), had gone hunting for bear. But that was in winter. Now it was summer and time to explore the jungle.

"We may find a tiger," Henry told his mother.

"Well, don't get eaten," his mother said, handing him his lunch.

It was harder exploring the jungle than Henry had thought it would be. The grass was so high he could hardly see over it, and not all of the inhabitants were friendly.

Still, explorers are brave; when they find a tiger, they know just what to do. It is such moments of triumph that make exploring worthwhile, and make reading about it almost as good.

Henry Explores the Mountains

It was fall. And on the night of the big frost, Henry and his dog, Laird Angus McAngus, decided that they must explore the wild and untracked mountains near their house. Before winter set in.

So the next morning they set out, with flags and banners as any good explorers would, and also rope. "You always need rope when climbing in the mountains - for safety," Henry said.

"I expect you to be home before dark," said Henry's father.

And off they went. They picked their way through dangerous canyons and up steep cliffs, had their lunch, and then trouble began. It proved to be an exciting afternoon for Henry and Angus, much better than Henry's imagination could have made it.
