This timeless classic now features a foreword written by New York Times bestselling author Judy Blume, as well as an exclusive interview with Beverly Cleary herself! 

In the first novel from Newbery Medal–winning author Beverly Cleary, boys and girls alike will be charmed instantly by an average boy whose life is turned upside down when he meets a lovable puppy with a nose for mischief.

Just as Henry Huggins is complaining that nothing exciting ever happens, a friendly dog sits down beside him and looks pleadingly at his ice-cream cone. From that moment on, the two are inseparable. But when Ribsy's original owner appears, trying to reclaim his dog, Henry's faced with the possibility of losing his new best friend. Has Klickitat Street seen the last of rambunctious Ribsy?

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic Is it possible to add any more superlatives and accolades to describe Beverly Cleary's books? Henry Huggins was a favourite of mine 30 years ago and last year I introduced my two girls to the gang on Klikitat Street. Being sisters, they can truly identify with the Ramona and Beezus books, but Henry Huggins is in a class by himself. The book is honest, warm, and funny. And if your family owns a dog, as ours does, it takes the humour to a whole new level. At our house, the Beverly Cleary books have a shelf all to themselves, and Henry Huggins is at the front of the line up!

From Our Editors

What’s a boy to do? The last thing the average guy like Henry Huggins wants is to look like a fool -- and that seems to be exactly what’s going to happen if he participates in the school play! Reluctant readers especially adore the adventures of Beverly Cleary’s characters, immortalized in the best-selling Henry and Ramona books. Henry Huggins is the Newbery Medallist’s first novel and is ideal reading for children aged eight to 12.
