Review by

A little girl had a pretty nose but she stuck her finger in it and it got stuck. Everyone tried to help her get it out with no success. Finally they allowed Henry to try and he tickled her and it came out. Not a really great plot. I suppose the lesson of not picking your nose would be good, but nothing else was striking about this book.

Review by

Nellie was born with the prettiest nose. One day Nellie was picking her pretty nose and her finger got stuck! All different kinds of people try to get it out, but had no success. Henry knew how to get it out the whole time, but no one would listen to him until everyone tried and failed. Henry tickled Nellie and her finger came right out. This story was very short and did not have that great of a plot. I suppose it would be a funny story for younger children, but did not really interest me.
