Henry Huggins doesn't think his life is very exciting, but everything changes when he finds a dog. Well, actually the dog finds him, and Henry names the dog Ribsy. This book holds six such stories of Henry's adventures with Ribsy. My favorite is when Henry buys two guppies for just 79 cents, which seems like a great deal at the time. The two guppies quickly turn into hundreds, but now Henry is running out of room and interest!
Although Henry is friends with Beezus, Ramona and her sister make only a few appearances in this series. Henry Huggins is an active and resourceful boy who can spot a great deal and think of many ways to earn money. In this series, Henry finds a dog, avoids pestering by little neighborhood girls, yearns for a bicycle and tries to land a paper route job. If boys aren't interested by Beezus and Ramona, they are sure to be drawn into Henry's adventures.
