Henry Huggin's dog, Ribsy, is hopelessly lost in a huge shopping mall parking lot. It's raining hard, the pavement is slick, horns are honking, and drivers are shouting. When Ribsy thinks he has found the Huggins's new station wagon at last, he jumps in the open tailgate window and falls asleep, exhausted. When he wakes up to find himself in the wrong car, lots of little girls pet him and make plans to give him a bath. All Ribsy wants to do is go home to Henry. Instead, he's about to begin the liveliest adventure of his life.Preformed by Neil Patrick Harris

All Ribsy the dog wanted that day was to ride along with his boy, Henry Huggins, in the new family station wagon. But a wild turn of events finds Ribsy lost in a rainy shopping mall parking lot, discovered by a rowdy group of little girls, and taken to a strange home where he's scrubbed with violet-scented shampoo and petted half to death.
Ribsy will do anything to find Henry, if he can only pick up the scent. And not only is his quest to get back home just beginning— it will take him places he never imagined!
Beverly Cleary gives lovable Ribsy the center stage in this dog's-eye view of the adventure of a lifetime.About the Author:
