Henry Huggins can't wait until he turns eleven years old, so he can have a paper route like his friend Scooter McCarthy. Henry wants to prove to the route manager that he is responsible enough to handle the job right now. First he thinks of giving away free kittens with newspaper subscriptions, and then his advertising scheme helps his class win the newspaper drive. But he still doesn't have a paper route. Will Ramona Quimby, making a real pest of herself, help Henry get the job he wants so much?

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nate | 2/20/2014

    " It was nice because Henry was able to get the paper route but his neighbor gave it to him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lydiaohlydia | 2/17/2014

    " This is the first Cleary Dylan and I read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Needleroozer | 2/11/2014

    " I didn't think the Henry books were nearly as entertaining as the Ramona books. Henry's "adventures" were kind of boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea Nicole | 1/30/2014

    " I remember reading this! So so cute and very lovable story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Jackson | 1/29/2014

    " Henry is only 10 but wants a job of being a paper boy but Mr. Capper doesn't hire until someone is 11. Henry does whatever he can to prove he is well qualified; he tries to give away kittens as a bonus when he sells newspaper subscriptions, he also totes around old magazines for the school paper drive. Henry still isn't allowed to have the job until he is 11. A new kid shows up, Murph. Murph takes over Scooter's old paper route which Henry wanted. Murph gave the paper route to Henry because he couldn't handle Ramona, she is destroying the paper route by throwing the papers off of customer's lawns onto random lawns. Henry outsmarts Ramona and is able to continue on with his paper route. This book would be used as a chapter book for a third grade classroom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 1/23/2014

    " Henry doesn't have the magnetism that silly rotten Ramona has, but it's easy to identify with him. He's a good kid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lily | 1/21/2014

    " All the books with Ramona, Henry, Beezus and Ribsy are hilarious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 12/13/2013

    " Not as many wacky hijinks as other Cleary books, but a good message about perseverance, disappointment and parents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellie | 12/9/2013

    " I thought this was cute, but it didn't hold the magic of the former "Henry" books we've read. It was a little slow at times and not as funny - still very cute, but I'd read it first before others :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 11/30/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 11/16/2011

    " I don't like Henry as much as Cleary's other characters -- he's just too earnest for me. However, Andy loves to read about Henry and Ribsy, so we do. It's funny trying to explain some of the more dated references. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary-Jane | 10/30/2011

    " Henry's objective is to get his own paper route. "

    " As a kid, these were some of my absolute favorite books! I personally preferred Henry to Ramona and Beezus, but I love that they're neighbors and are featured in each others' stories. I am definitely going to get my kids to read all of Beverly Cleary's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 9/16/2011

    " I believe "Henry and the Paper Route" was the last Beverly Cleary book I read. The reason this review is only two-out-of-five stars is because I was beginning to outgrow her characters and their situations no longer seemed as interesting. "

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.
