“Genuinely funny.” (ALA Booklist)
“Henry’s audience is in for more laughs. Another Cleary hit!” (Kirkus 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.” (The New York Times)
From the Back Cover
Henry Huggins's neighbors have had it with his dog Ribsy's reckless cat-chasing, food-stealing mischief. Then Henry's dad makes a deal with him: If Ribsy can behave himself for two months, Henry can go with Mr. Huggins on the big fishing trip. Henry thinks this will be easy—but he didn't bargain for Ribsy's unstoppable nose for trouble!
