For Henry Huggins and his friends Robert and Murph, a clubhouse is a place where they can do as they please, without being bothered by girls. The sign that says NO GIRLS ALLOWED -- THIS MEANS YOU especially means Ramona Quimby. Lately Ramona has been following Henry on his newspaper route, embarrassing him in front of Henry's customers. The day Ramona follows Henry to the clubhouse, she wants to teach him girls aren't so bad, but she almost puts an end to his newspaper career forever.

Now that Henry Huggins has a paper route, he's a bit strapped for free time—what with delivering newspapers and collecting subscription payments—but that doesn't stop him and his friends Robert and Murph from building their very own clubhouse! From the top secret password to the giant stuffed owl perched on the shelf that Murph built, the boys are thrilled with their private space.
But Henry soon realizes that even a "No Girls Allowed" sign won't keep out neighborhood pest Ramona Quimby—and once Ramona gets mad, she just might cause the end of Henry's newspaper career.
How Henry and Ramona clash—and compromise—is delightfully and hilariously told by beloved children's author Beverly Cleary.About the Author:
