Henry and Ribsy by Beverly Cleary

Henry and Ribsy
was written by Beverly Cleary in 1954. This year, when Mr. Huggins goes fishing, his son Henry wants to come, too. But Henry's dog Ribsy is causing trouble. So they make a deal, if Henry can keep Ribsy out of trouble for a month, Mr. Huggins will take him fishing. Henry thinks it'll be easy, but he soon learns it's going to be harder then he thought.


  1. I so loved the Beverly Cleary books! I miss the days when children were unplugged, played outdoors, and understood that it was ok to not have all of the answers.

  2. Well said. I miss those days too!
