This timeless classic now features a foreword written by New York Times bestselling author Judy Blume, as well as an exclusive interview with Beverly Cleary herself!

In the first novel from Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary, boys and girls alike will be charmed instantly by an average boy whose life is turned upside down when he meets a lovable puppy with a nose for mischief.

Just as Henry Huggins is complaining that nothing exciting ever happens, a friendly dog sits down beside him and looks pleadingly at his ice-cream cone. From that moment on, the two are inseparable. But when Ribsy's original owner appears, trying to reclaim his dog, Henry's faced with the possibility of losing his new best friend. Has Klickitat Street seen the last of rambunctious Ribsy?

Laugh out loud! funny.
I read the 2000 (50th anniversary edition) with updated illustrations by Louis Darling.
This is the edition in my granddaughter's library. ( When Skyping it's best to have the same editions.)

For all who know Beverly Cleary as only the author of Ramona books, I heartily recommend all of her titles. My son who is seven loves all of her books. Henry Huggins is a wonderful portrait of a boy from a time long past, but with lessons for the ages. Beezus and Ramona also make appearances as fixtures in the neighborhood. Henry's relationship with Ramona is hysterical. These books are wonderful.
