Editorial Reviews

Review

“When Ramona takes over, she is as wild funny as ever.” (The New York Times)

“Henry goes on being funny with a resemblance to everyone’s younger brother. A chuckle a page!” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This book is certain of a warm welcome.” (Saturday Review)

From the Back Cover

Henry Huggins, paper boy!

Henry Huggins feels he's ready for a paper route of his own—but the newspaper won't hire him because he's too young. Luckily there's a lot happening on Klickitat Street to distract Henry while he waits for his birthday to come around: a box of mischievous kittens, a new boy with a robot, and, as always, the irrepressible Ramona Quimby . . . who just may get Henry the paper route he so desperately wants!

Format: Paperback
As with the previous books, Henry and the Paper Route is written in chapter book style where each chapter is almost a short story in-and-of-itself and which all wind their way toward the ultimate goal (each book Henry has that ONE thing he's got to get or do) which makes for interesting reading, wondering how each part will ultimately work out with the end goal. It's clear from the title that this volume in the Henry Huggins series is all about Henry and his desire to get a paper route all his own and as the chapters go on, we see how he goes about proving he's ready to do that! With this book we also get to read more about Beezus and Ramona, Scooter, Ribsy and more!

Henry and the Paper Route is six chapters of boyishly good adventure geared toward Henry obtaining the paper route of his dreams! We start out with Henry in hot water over bringing home four kittens...this chapter is all about him making an interesting first impression with Mr. Capper (the newspaper guy). The second chapter is about his tireless search to find good homes for those kittens. Chapter three Henry engineers a clever plan to help his class get ahead in the school paper drive and in chapter four we find out if his plan was successful or not! Chapter five Henry meets Murph, boy genius and finds that Murph has transferred into the paper route he's had his eye on! Oh, no...in chapter six will Henry finally get that route or is he destined to only fill in and help Scooter out? Your young reader will love finding out!

I give this book five stars...though the Henry Huggins series was written in the 1940's and 50's and have a bit of a Leave It to Beaver feel with regards to the traditional family roles and quaint feel of the daily life of the kids in them...they are also rather timeless.

We bought my six year old a boxed set of Beverly Cleary book at a warehouse store, and there were some that were not included. This was one of them. These books are pretty timeless, and are just as good as I remember them being when I was in elementary school. These make GREAT bedtime reading for our voracious young reader, and I look forward to reading them again with my daughter when she's older.

The boy in the story wants to be a paperboy, but he is told he's too young. He ingratiates himself with the other paperboys and helps them fold papers. One boy asks him to fill in one day and he is eager to do the job. His school has a paper drive going on and he gets the idea to put a brief advertisement in the rolled up papers. This works great and he has a huge job collecting all the papers and magazines his neighborhood has for him. But he sticks with it and gets the job done.
Throughout the story he takes on jobs which test his ability to complete. But he doesn't give up and works to find more efficient ways of accomplishing it. Pretty admirable kid with guts and determination. A well told story. My 8 year old liked it even tho it isn't high adventure or danger or anything exotic. It's just a nice kid living his life and I imagine he will grow into a successful man.

I was surprised to see that the edition I'd selected was a paperback rather than the hardcover that was described. While the condition was good, the book in tact, a nice copy actually, it wasn't exactly what I'd ordered.

This seller was prompt to rectify the problem to my satisfaction and kindly apologized for the error.

And as confused as you may be right now as to why I gave such a good rating, The seller made me happy. That counts for a lot when things don't go the way you hope they will. Great customer service goes a long way.

My son who is 6 is hooked on these books both to try and learn to read but also to have us read to him. The books are probably too advanced for 1st grade but closer to 2nd / 3rd grade. He enjoys the story lines and is getting more engaged in the series.

A Kid's Review on March 18, 2006
Format: Paperback
I am 8 years old. I like all of the Beverly Cleary books. This book is funny. I especially liked the part when Ramona pinned a jump rope to her overalls and pretended she was a monkey. She went to the store with her family, and some people joked around and thought she was a new species for sale. Then she thought they were not joking and she ran away from the store. Ramona is four in this book, and she is my favorite character in the Beverly Cleary books.

Henry Huggins is back and this time he sets his sights on getting a paper route like his older friend, Scooter McCarthy. Scooter reminds Henry of one small problem: all carriers have to be at least eleven years old. Henry has a birthday coming up soon, but he's not eleven yet. Much of the book focuses on Henry's attempts to impress Mr. Capper, who manages the newspaper delivery in his neighborhood. He has his usual misadventures along the way, such as his acquisition of some kittens at a rummage sale. He also gets involved in a school paper drive, and this causes a rift between him and Scooter. Henry soon celebrates his eleventh birthday, reconciles with Scooter, and meets a new boy in the neighborhood named Murph. Murph is a boy inventor, and Henry soon learns he's looking for a paper route of his own. Will he get the route instead of Henry? Henry's friend Beatrice "Beezus" Quimby is around to provide her usual support, and her younger sister Ramona causes her usual havoc. In fact, it's largely because of Ramona that Henry ends up getting his route! Read the book and learn more.
