From the Back Cover
A clubhouse of their own. . .
Henry Huggins and his friends Robert and Murph have been working hard in whatever free time they can find to build a clubhouse of their very own—one in which they can be safe from neighborhood pest Ramona Quimby. But Ramona not only refuses to pay attention to the phrase "No Girls Allowed," she almost ruins Henry's paper route—and his newspaper career!
Top Customer Reviews
The chapters start out with Henry forgetting about his paper route and winding up riding through town in a bathtub, then Henry and Ribsy making the acquaintance of the new neighborhood dog, we follow them on Halloween night, on a day of collection for his newspaper route, through his building of the clubhouse (with a strict No Girls policy) and his run in with Beezus and Ramona as a result (hilarious), Henry's clever "solution" to Ramona's pestering, and how he wound up with a little shadow! Overall the stories are clever and humorous in a way that I think kids genuinely appreciate and relate to!
Where does he find materials for his clubhouse? How does it turn out? What's up with that huge stuffed owl? What's it like to ride through town in a bathtub? How hard is a paper route? Will Henry ever get that sleeping bag? If you want to know you simply must read Henry and the Clubhouse, you won't be disappointed! These stories were written in the 1950's and 60's, so money matters are a bit off, but the rest is charming and the overall themes, humor, and childhood joys, frustrations and embarrassments have held up so wonderfully over the years...these books are great for girls and boys! I give this one an A+, another fine Henry Huggins adventure!
Beezus' younger sister, Ramona, is around to cause her usual trouble. This time she is addicted to television, and drives everyone crazy with her constant recitation of commercial pitches and jingles. After she humiliates Henry by locking him in the clubhouse, Henry decides to teach her a lesson by writing a letter to her TV hero, Sheriff Bud. The scheme works, but backfires in a big way: Henry is now Ramona's idol and she wants to follow him everywhere he goes! In the process, she inadvertently turns Henry into a local hero and even gets his name in the paper. Henry's father and Mr. Capper, both of whom earlier doubted his ability to handle a route, affirm their confidence in him. Hence the last line of the book: "Good old Ramona!"

My children love this book. I read it out loud to a 7 and 4 year old. The seven year old was more interested, but occassionally, the four year old would pay attention.Published 9 months ago by Amazon Customer
