9780688213817: Henry and the Clubhouse (Henry Huggins)

Fiery Ramona Quimby and the well-meaning Henry Huggins may clash, but in this delightful and hilariously told novel by Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary, an unlikely compromise wins the day.

Henry and his friends are building a no-girls-allowed clubhouse. With a private space of their own away from everyone else—and even a top secret entry password—they're all thrilled with their boy fort. But Henry's about to find out that nothing—not even a sign—will keep gutsy Ramona out of their clubhouse...and her retaliation may just ruin Henry's newspaper career.

From the Back Cover:

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:

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up.

Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.



Jaqueline Rogers has been a professional children's book illustrator for more than twenty years and has worked on nearly one hundred children's books.
