Henry Huggins is friends with Beezus Quimby—even though she’s a girl and has a pesky little sister, Ramona, who has a way of causing trouble!

When Henry finds a goldmine of gum balls, Beezus helps him take them to school to sell because she knows he’s trying to earn money for a bike. Henry’s best chance to get one comes when the police station holds an auction for lost bikes. He sets off to buy a red one, but Beezus and Ramona tag along—and Ramona brings a fat slimy garden slug…

In her first book, Henry Huggins, Beverly Cleary created funny, endearing characters and situations that left readers asking for more. In this second adventure, will not be disappointed. They’ll laugh as they pull for Henry, hoping his dream of a bike comes true.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A very funny sequel to Henry Huggins.” 

    Chicago Tribune

  • “[William Roberts’] smooth, articulate British voice seems to have a serious tone, but he’s fully able to deliver Henry and Beezus’ escapades with style.” 

    AudioFile

  • “More Henry Huggins and just as good or better. A minor classic of a today’s Tom Sawyer…This for our money is infinitely preferable to the somewhat sticky fantasy of some of today’s juveniles. There’s the kind of adventure with which any small boy could identify himself.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

    " Not as good as some of the other Henry/Beezus books, and this was a British version with no Louis Darling illustrations, so the reading experience was a bit diminished. "

    " What I loved most about Ramona, Beezus, Henry, and the rest of Beverly Cleary's children was how real their fears and joys and neuroses seemed to be - and how easily readers could identify with them. I can't wait to give my kids these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 7/9/2010

    " Fun and funny. Good writing never seems dated. "

    " I think this book should be called Hennry and his biceikle because Henry
    gets a knew bike at the end.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 NaDell | 4/28/2010

    " My girls loved listening to the two Beverly Cleary stories so far. They are so fun and entertaining. I read them a chapter a night while they went to sleep for a while. It's nice that there are less than 10 chapters in each book. On to the next one! "

About the Author
Author Beverly Cleary

Beverly Cleary was born in McMinnville, Oregon, and until she was old enough to attend school she lived on a farm in Yamhill, a town so small it had no library. Her mother arranged to have books sent to their tiny town from the state library and acted as a librarian in a room over a bank. It was there that Mrs. Cleary learned to love books. Generations of children have grown up with Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Ralph Mouse, and all of their friends, families, and assorted pets. Cleary continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages throughout the world.
