In Henry and the Paper Route by Beverly Cleary and illustrated by Louis Darling, when Henry sees his friend Scooter delivering newspapers, he's seized with the desire for a paper route of his own. But Scooter's boss, Mr. Capper, won't hire Henry because Henry isn't eleven yet. While Henry waits impatiently for his birthday to come, he tries everything he can think of to get Mr. Capper to change his mind. But in the end it might just be pesky little Ramona Quimby who saves the day. Recommended for ages 8 to 12 years.
