From the Back Cover
When Henry Huggins sees his friend Scooter delivering newspapers, he's seized with the desire for a paper route of his own. But Scooter's boss, Mr. Capper, won't hire Henry because Henry's not yet eleven!
While Henry waits for his birthday to come, he tries everything he can think of to get Mr. Capper to change his mind. From offering free kittens as a bonus when he sells newspaper subscriptions to hauling hundreds of pounds of old magazines for his school's paper drive, there's nothing Henry won't do to prove himself. But in the end it might just be pesky little Ramona Quimby who saves the day. . . .
Beloved author Beverly Cleary gives readers a hero they'll recognize—and root for—in Henry and the Paper Route.
