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!
Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
