Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

This special edition of Henry and the Paper Route features the original illustrations by Louis Darling--the first artist to ever render Henry, Ribsy, Ramona, and Beezus--as well as a foreword written by the New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of the Wimpy Kid series, Jeff Kinney.

Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary gives readers a hero they'll relate to--and root for--in this comical and inspiring novel about Henry Huggins's mission to prove himself worthy of his very own paper route.

All the older kids work their own paper route, but because Henry is not quite eleven yet, Mr. Capper won't let him. Desperate to change his dad's mind, Henry tries everything he can think of to show he's mature and responsible enough for the job. From offering free kittens to new subscribers, to hauling hundreds of pounds of old magazines for his school's paper drive, there's nothing Henry won't try.

But it just might turn out to be the irrepressible Ramona Quimby who shows Mr. Capper how capable Henry is.

   Enjoyable story with positive lessons
The boy in the story wants to be a paperboy, but is told he is too young. He ingratiates himself with the other paperboys and helps them fold the papers. One boy asks him to fill up one day and he is eager to do the job. His school has a paper drive running and he gets the idea to put a short advertisement in the rolled papers. This works great and he has a huge job collecting all the papers and magazines that his neighborhood has for him. Throughout the story, he takes jobs that test his ability to complete. But he does not give up and works to find more efficient ways of doing it. My 8 year old liked it even though it is not a high adventure or danger or anything exotic. It's just a successful kid living his life and I imagine that he will grow into a beautiful man.
   Great Adventure Book for Boys
He enjoyed each of the books about Henry's adventures throughly. All Henry Huggins books are wonderful for boys to read, they really grasp their attention and keep it. When I asked my son what book he wanted to read next, he said he wanted to read the books of Henry Huggins over again. I would highly recommend this book, as well as the others in the Henry Huggins series, and don 't forget Ribsy's book too.
   Great book!
I bought this book for my 8 year old grandson, who loves to read, and he enjoyed it, but doesn 't like Beverly Cleary!
   Great old-fashion book
My 10-year-old grandson and I really enjoy reading the books of Henry Huggins together. Amazon also offers fast shipping!
   A Charming Book that Never Goes Out of Style
Henry is a wonderful boy and reading Henry and the Paper Route will delight children and adults who may be reading along. Beverly Cleary's writing is remarkable, uses excellent vocabulary that children can learn and use, and her characters are relatable to boys and girls. If you read it as a child, you 'll love revisiting it. If you have never read it, share it with a child in your life.
   Beverly Cleary is Awesome!
, '' he said.
   Lovely thoughts, but drags for my grandsons ages 7-11.
Maybe too wordy and slow moving with modern behaviors that are foreign to old city children.
