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.
Beverly Cleary is one of the most popular and best-loved authors of children's books. Her works have sold over 75 million copies in 20 countries and have been translated into 14 languages. These figures are even more impressive with the added fact that Cleary had trouble learning to read when she was a child. Cleary has created many memorable characters including Henry Huggins and his dog Ribsy, Ellen Tebbits, and her most popular character, Ramona Quimby. In 1984, Cleary won the Newbery Medal book for DEAR MR. HENSHAW. She also received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for her body of work. Today, fans of Beverly Cleary can visit the town of Portland, Oregon--where Cleary was raised and set many of her books--and find a wading fountain featuring statues of Henry, Ribsy, and Ramona.
From the Publisher
When Henry first thinks of building a clubhouse for him and his friends, he's sure it's a great idea. However, Henry soon finds that the clubhouse takes a lot of time--time that cuts into his work as a paperboy. To further complicate matters, Henry's friends don't want to let girls in the clubhouse (an idea Henry secretly disapproves of because of his friendship with Beezus Quimby--someone he considers "pretty sensible for a girl"). The no-girls policy causes conflict in the neighborhood, especially with Beezus's pesky younger sister, Ramona. Will Henry's great idea end up causing a disaster? Illustrated with occasional B&W drawings.
Henry Huggins had a lot of good ideas that fall when he first had his paper route, but somehow his ideas had a way of not turning out as he had planned. Something always went wrong.
