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!

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.
Henry and the Paper Route is the fourth book in the series. As the title suggests, Henry‘s main focus is getting a paper route of his very own. This is something that Henry has wanted for most of the series, and he has even helped his friend Scooter with his paper route… but he has been too young to have a route of his own. Of course, it would be too simple for Henry to receive a paper route as soon as he turns eleven, and you’re going to have to read the book to find out how Henry gets his route.
This is a fun book. There are some changes, like the new boy who moves to Henry’s neighborhood; he’s a genius, and he has his very own mechanical man. But overall, life has changed very little on Klickitat Street- Ramona Quimby is still pestering Henry, and he has to think of how to outwit the feisty preschooler.
There was one part of this book that made my oldest daughter very sad. After hearing about Henry’s birthday party, she asked why Beezus wasn’t invited. She pointed out that Beezus was Henry’s friend too. She’s absolutely right; Beezus is probably Henry’s closest friend, and she’s the one who he seems to spend the most time with. My daughter seemed satisfied with the explanation that Henry must have been having a boys-only party, but her question really made me think about the nature of friendships.
I would recommend Henry and the Paper Route to middle grade readers. Younger children might enjoy hearing this book read out loud.Read more ›
