In this humorous and heartfelt novel from Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary, the bond between a boy and his dog proves strong, as Henry vows to stick up for Ribsy…even if he is a trouble-maker!

So when Henry asks his dad if he can go along on the big fishing trip, Mr. Huggins agrees, but on one condition: Ribsy must stay out of mischief for two whole months.

From Our Editors

Henry Huggins adores his dog Ribsy -- as do most people. But when the mischievous hound gets into more trouble than usual, Henry promises a Ribsy-free month to Klickitat Street. But then, what should Ribsy do but steal a police officer’s sandwich -- among other crimes and misdemeanours! Henry Huggins is back in the acclaimed Henry and Ribsy by Newbery Medallist Beverly Cleary, in an adventure ideal for reluctant middle readers.

Editorial Reviews

“Ribsy complicates life as only a loyal, bumbling, well-intentioned mutt can. Few writers for children handle everyday comedy so briskly and realistically as Beverly Cleary.”
