“You see, an engine like me can be really useful, even if I can't swim or fly!”

Henry to the Rescue is a magazine story.


One day, Henry is going to the harbour when he spots Harold flying above the waves. Then he sees a lifeboat speeding along. When he reaches the harbour, the harbourmaster comes running; a tanker has hit the rocks and all the fishing boats have gone to help so there is no fish for Henry to collect. Henry wants to help, but Cranky tells him that an engine cannot possibly help. Just then, the lifeboat arrives with the sailors that were rescued from the tanker. The wind is too strong for Harold to land and the sailors need to get to the hospital. Henry volunteers and the next day, he tells Cranky that an engine does not have to swim or fly to be really useful.
