For his birthday last year, Henry wished for his parents to be more fun and ease up on the family rules. Henry got just what he wanted! For the last year Mama and Papa Bear have been feeding Henry sweets, keeping him up late at night, and encouraging him to ignore schoolwork. All year Henry has been miserable, but fortunately, it is now his next birthday and his big chance set things right again. He wishes for his parents to go back to their normal, responsible selves. Again his wish is granted, and a relieved Henry gets to bed on time.
