This is a very different book for Cleary. Not only is she writing about things from Ribsy's perspective, but she also wanders into the homes of several people who are fundamentally different from wholesome Huggins and Quimby families. Letting us see people who want to use Ribsy for their own ends gives us a glimpse into human nature that doesn't come through in the Ramona books.
These differences make this book stand out from the other Cleary books, and I really enjoyed it as a child. There are some quirky and imaginative adventures in store for Ribsy, and it's easy to get invested in the desires of the dog and the boy, who just want to find each other and be happy together.
This is one of the best books from among Cleary's early work, and I recommend it for anyone who might not be interested in her other books.
Henry and Ribsy is a wonderful book. Henry and Ribsy are funny. It's descriptive and has adventure. This book is about a boy named Henry and his dog Ribsy. Henry wanted to go fishing so bad. When his father said "Yes" henry was proud! So they went fishing with his father and his dog Ribsy. Henry caught a twenty-five pound fish!
Henry and Ribsy are funny! It was humorous when Romona sat on ribsy and yanked his ears. It was funny when Henry put two strings on a bone tied the two string to his two teeth and summoned Ribsy, and Ribsy ran with the bone and pulled out Henry's two teeth.
It was descriptive when Henry told about how he was going to pull out his two front teeth. It was also descriptive when Henry trys to make up a story trying to bluff his friends that his hair is not messed up.
It was a real adventure when Henry caught a twenty-five pound fish. I couldn't stop reading when Ribsy fell out of the boat.
I first got into it when my 2nd grade teacher read it to our class.
It is about a dog, Ribsy, who is very much loved by his owner Henry Huggins. He climbs out of his family's car in a shopping mall parking lot and decides to do a bit of exploring. He then decides he wants to go back to the family car and go home, but he can't identify the car. He tries to find his way back home, but can't find the way. Many people take him into their homes but he is never content to stay.
Kids who own pets of their own will be able to relate to Henry's sadness over his missing dog, and his determination to find him no matter what.
The illustrations are adorable.
This book was my first introduction to Beverly Cleary, so it holds a special place in my heart. Henry's adventures are real, funny, and heart-warming. The chapter "Ramona and the PTA" is not to be missed; it's a riot.
I highly recommend this kid's classic.
