Henry didn't think about cleaning or fixing it up.
Henry seems a like he might be a little lazy because he is not cleaning up his house and not doing anything about it.
When the village came to ask if he could clean up his house he just said excuse me.
Henry was working to make dinner for himself so he might not be so lazy.
Henry would not mow his grass or fix his fence and it was bothering others.
When two nice ladies made him pies he said no good bye kind of mean.
When people in the winter asked him if they could shovel his yard he say NO!
Henry left the little town.
The people of the town realized that that they told him to leave and that they were trying to tell him to do what they wanted him to do but not what Henry wanted to do.
Henry realized that he missed that pies and everyone helping him so he is writing a letter to the mayor.
