This is Mary Louise and her chicken, Henrietta. Children like to name the chickens on the farm. She went to spend a couple of weeks on the farm with her grandparents. Her mother is the woman from the first story who is whooping it up on the beach while Mary Louise is gone. It's not a very well kept up farm. They're too busy having a good time! Henrietta the chicken is very used to Mary Louise. They must be friends. She has an apron on - she's probably gathering eggs to bake cookies. Mary Louise looks mischievous. She is hiding to surprise the man in the barn.
