Description

Beverly Cleary's Newbery Medal-winning book explores the thoughts and emotions of a sixth-grade boy, Leigh Botts, in letter form as he writes to his favorite author, Boyd Henshaw.

After his parents separate, Leigh Botts moves to a new town with his mother. Struggling to make friends and deal with his anger toward his absent father, Leigh loses himself in a class assignment in which he must write to his favorite author. When Mr. Henshaw responds, the two form an unexpected friendship that will change Leigh's life forever.

Customer Reviews

A favorite...

...from childhood that still holds up today. I'm thinking of reading this to my fifth graders. It is touching and timeless.

Dear Mr.Henshaw

Best book to read during the summer

OK Book

Very good book. The beginning was interesting but then it started to get a little boring because it was mainly about how sad and bored Leigh was. Beverly could have come up with something better at the end. I like some of the jokes. Some parts of the story are a little sad. I like the letters he writes to Mr. Hens haw. Overall it was a pretty good book. Good Time management is the key. The book could have been better.
