About 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.

Louis Darling was an illustrator, writer, and environmentalist who was born and lived most of his life in Connecticut. His illustrations filled the pages of Beverly Cleary’s books until his death in 1970. His work is celebrated and immortalized by generations of fans.

I enjoyed this book because it was funny and interesting.It's about Henry finding a dog and getting in more trouble then he used to. For example, Henry was playing catch with his friend and his dog made him throw it in the car by barking and started him. If you like reading about animals and realistic fiction this is one of the best books. If you ever read this book you should tell family and friends to read this book too.
