Editorial Reviews

Review

“When Ramona takes over, she is as wild funny as ever.” (The New York Times)

“Henry goes on being funny with a resemblance to everyone’s younger brother. A chuckle a page!” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This book is certain of a warm welcome.” (Saturday Review)

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!

Format: Paperback
As with the previous books, Henry and the Paper Route is written in chapter book style where each chapter is almost a short story in-and-of-itself and which all wind their way toward the ultimate goal (each book Henry has that ONE thing he's got to get or do) which makes for interesting reading, wondering how each part will ultimately work out with the end goal. It's clear from the title that this volume in the Henry Huggins series is all about Henry and his desire to get a paper route all his own and as the chapters go on, we see how he goes about proving he's ready to do that! With this book we also get to read more about Beezus and Ramona, Scooter, Ribsy and more!

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.

We bought my six year old a boxed set of Beverly Cleary book at a warehouse store, and there were some that were not included. This was one of them. These books are pretty timeless, and are just as good as I remember them being when I was in elementary school. These make GREAT bedtime reading for our voracious young reader, and I look forward to reading them again with my daughter when she's older.

The boy in the story wants to be a paperboy, but he is told he's too young. He ingratiates himself with the other paperboys and helps them fold papers. One boy asks him to fill in one day and he is eager to do the job. His school has a paper drive going on and he gets the idea to put a brief advertisement in the rolled up papers. This works great and he has a huge job collecting all the papers and magazines his neighborhood has for him. But he sticks with it and gets the job done.
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.

I was surprised to see that the edition I'd selected was a paperback rather than the hardcover that was described. While the condition was good, the book in tact, a nice copy actually, it wasn't exactly what I'd ordered.

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.

My girls and I have been listening to a lot of audiobooks this summer. We made our way through most of Beverly Cleary’s Henry Huggins series. Neil Patrick Harris really brings the books to life, and made the stories even funnier.

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.
