Overview

In this humorous and heartfelt novel from Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary, the bond between a boy and his dog proves strong, as Henry vows to stick up for Ribsy…even if he is a trouble-maker!

From the first moment Henry found Ribsy, the curious mutt was poking his nose into things he shouldn't be. Whether terrorizing the garbage man, chasing cats, or gobbling Ramona Quimby's ice-cream cone, Henry's four-legged pal has walked himself into one problem too many. So when Henry asks his dad if he can go along on the big fishing trip, Mr. Huggins agrees, but on one condition: Ribsy must stay out of mischief for two whole months. Henry is confident in his loyal dog…until Ribsy goes overboard with his appetite for chaos…literally!

Meet the Author

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up.

Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.


Jaqueline Rogers has been a professional children's book illustrator for more than twenty years and has worked on nearly one hundred children's books.

Book title and author: Henry and Ribsy Beverly Clearly Title of review: Henry and Ribsy Number of stars (1 to 5): 3.5 Introduction Henry and Ribsy was a good book because Henry has to face a challenge by keeping his dog out of trouble so he can go on a fishing trip with his dad but Ribsy is always getting into trouble. Ribsy took a police man's lunch ran into the neighbor's barbecue and will do many other things. Description and summary of main points The main points of this book is that you have to work for what you want to do. And that's what Henry has to do with Ribsy. He always wanted to go fishing with his dad and he told him he can go when he is older and Henry wants to go this year and he tells his friend that when his dad takes him fishing he is going to catch a Chinook, a Chinook is a large salmon fish. But his friend Scooter says that its to big of a fish it weighs 20-30 pounds and he could never catch it. Evaluation I liked the book Henry and Ribsy because it achieves all the goals and purpose of what the book is really about. And it's a really good book for younger children because henry takes a lot of responsibility and shows his parents that they can trust him. Conclusion The conclusion of this book is that Henry was being responsible there are good things that can happen like what he wants to do and that what happens to him. Your final review I gave this book a 3.5 because it teaches kids how to be responsible and that there actions can make something good happen to them
