About the Author
Robert McCloskey (1914-2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children's books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first ever two-time Caldecott Medal winner, for Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder, McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Journey Cake, Ho! by Ruth Sawyer. He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000. You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston's Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio.

They are "kids" books, but I recently purchased them to read them as an adult.
Henry Reed is a young teen who lives a summer with his Aunt and Uncle. Henry writes about his summer in a journal (not a diary as he points out). Now the journal is less about emotion and feelings and more about storytelling and documenting the events.
What's great about Henry Reed is the level of thought that goes into the various schemes - whether to make money or to experiment. It shows a level of imagination in kids that is hard to find these days. Now these schemes have a good goals or intentions, but always result in some sort of roadbumps and humor.
The series are a little dated for today's kids, but it's a fun read and provides kids with a great view of life before electronics dominated our lives. It shows how kids can use their imaginations and creativity for fun.
I highly recommend this series of books!
