In Henry Huggins by Beverly Cleary and illustrated by Louis Darling, third grader Henry Huggins's life on Klickitat Street was just about as exciting as getting your tonsils out. That is, until a thump, thump, thump of a stray dog's tail changed Henry's life forever. From the moment the hungry pup, Ribsy, looked up longingly at Henry's ice cream cone while sitting on a downtown sidewalk, the two became inseparable. Beginning with trouble on the bus trip home that leads to a thrilling ride in a police car, Ribsy ensures that Henry will never have another dull moment. Together, Henry and Ribsy cause more excitement than Klickitat Street can handle! Recommended for ages 8 to 12 years.
