    I wish I had an opportunity to read the series when I was 10 At that age my only books were fairy tales I had a lot of tales, but nothing about real life.

    I discovered as a kid that I did not care for the later Henry Huggins book s Now as an adult I find it is still true.This one is about Henry desire for a paper route.There were some good moments in this book.I loved Henry bringing home four kittens, and of course I loved the parts Ramona was in It reminded me of how hilarious Ramona was when she wanted to get her own way.All in all a good book, but not one of my favorites.

    Henry really wants a paper route of his own, but at first he s a year too young, and then a new kid moves to the neighborhood and quickly becomes competitionCharlie is just loving the Henry books so far, and it s fun to read them with him although Henry s attitude toward girls is a bit neanderthal like.

    Somehow I seem to have missed the Henry books in my youth This was my first, a readaloud While it was enjoyable as all of Beverly Cleary s books are, it didn t feel quite as unique as the Ramona books, Henry being aordinary, sort of slightly dull kid I d still happily read another of them.

    Once again, another clever Cleary tale, told from the perspective of Henry Huggins, neighbor of the famed Ramona Quimby We listened to this on audio and it passed many a mile At times we even laughed out loud Hard to believe that paper routes are on the verge of extinction now I remember the boys on their bicycles and the canvas bags holding the folded newspapers, and how they d come to the door to collect the money for subscriptions.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here My favorite part was when Henry found a way to stop Ramona from bothering him on his paper route My least favorite part was when Ramona kept taking the papers and throwing them randomly at houses.
