Description



About the Book



Separated from his owner, Henry Huggins, in a shopping center parking lot, an ordinary city dog begins a string of bewildering adventures.



Book Synopsis



Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary gives Henry's dog, Ribsy, center stage in this dog's eye view of the adventure of a lifetime. This classic story about a dog and his boy is as fresh and funny as ever!

Good ol' Ribsy's ever-curious mind has always gotten him into trouble, but this time he may have gone too far. After a comical turn of events, Ribsy finds himself in the wrong station wagon with the wrong children.

Ribsy will do anything to find Henry, but there's plenty of excitement to be had along the way--and scoring a touchdown for a local high school team is only part of the fun!

For kids looking for a fast, funny dog story, Ribsy is a winner. This timeless favorite works well for independent reading.



From the Back Cover



All Ribsy the dog wanted that day was to ride along with his boy, Henry Huggins, in the new family station wagon. But a wild turn of events finds Ribsy lost in a rainy shopping mall parking lot, discovered by a rowdy group of little girls, and taken to a strange home where he's scrubbed with violet-scented shampoo and petted half to death.

Ribsy will do anything to find Henry, if he can only pick up the scent. And not only is his quest to get back home just beginning-- it will take him places he never imagined!

Beverly Cleary gives lovable Ribsy the center stage in this dog's-eye view of the adventure of a lifetime.
