Quotes & Awards

  • “Cleary provides a warm, autobiographical introduction to this excellent adaptation of her first book, which was originally published in 1950…Harris proves a versatile performer taking on a whole community of friendly voices, including Henry's exasperated but supportive parents and memorable neighbors Beezus and Ramona. He nails Henry's sense of innocent wonder and his sweet, honest demeanor in every scene, employing an authentic boyish delivery that can amuse as well as tug at the heart—just like Cleary’s writing.” 

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Harris reads the humorous Henry Huggins with an energy that suits the adventurous Henry and his friends.” 


  • “Stories about boys and their dogs are often timeless classics, and Henry Huggins is the epitome of both. Celebrating fifty years in print, this story of Henry, how he finds and brings home a lost dog and several of their adventures, is a classic…Neil Patrick Harris presents all this with an innocent, forthright, easy-going Henry. We also meet the other kids on Klickitat Street, all individually voiced, who inhabit the next 50 years of Cleary's works, bringing humor, wholesome values, and a slice of yesterday into the present.” 


  • “Enchanting small-boy adventures—a grammar school Odyssey.”

Listener Opinions

    " I read this when I was a kid and remembered liking it so I decided to read it with my daughter. She liked it and is ready to move on to the next in the series. It was enjoyable for me and brought back some memories from my childhood when I read all the Beverly Cleary books. The only part she didn't like was that Henry feeds Ribsy horse meat. She is a rider and that part she found quite disturbing! I didn't remember that and quite frankly thought it was gross too! Otherwise we had a good time reading it! "

    " Fun and funny, but at the end of the day just too 1950s for me. Cleary's Beezus and Ramona books have aged better. "

    " It was fun to read Henry Huggins in the context of Beverly Cleary's memoirs. Just as she hoped, the book was very simple, funny and loveable. "
