Henry the bear in this story and subsequent stories is Henry David Thoreau. The author took inspiration from Thoreau's, " Walden". When my son picked a few of these up, we had no idea. It was a nice surprise and led to a great discussion on Thoreau. The illustrations are charming. I'm not sure how or why he chose a bear to portray Thoreau, but it works.
