    About Beverly Cleary Louis Darling Tracy Dockray


    1. Beverly Cleary born April 12, 1916 is the author of over 30 books for young adults and children Her characters are normal children facing challenges that many of us face growing up, and her stories are liberally laced with humour Some of her best known and loved characters are Ramona Quimby and her sister Beatrice Beezus , Henry Huggins, and Ralph S Mouse.Beverly Cleary was born Beverly Atlee Bunn in McMinnville, Oregon When she was 6, her family moved to Portland, Oregon, where she went to grammar and high school She was slow in learning to read, due partly to her dissatisfaction with the books she was required to read and partly to an unpleasant first grade teacher It wasn t until she was in third grade that she found enjoyment from books, when she started reading The Dutch Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins Thereafter, she was a frequent visitor to the library, though she rarely found the books she most wanted to read those about children like herself.She moved to California to attend the University of California, Berkeley, and after graduation with a B.A in English in 1938, studied at the School of Librarianship at the University of Washington in Seattle, where she earned a degree in librarianship in 1939 Her first job was as a librarian in Yakima, Washington, where she met many children who were searching for the same books that she had always hoped to find as a child herself In response, she wrote her first book, Henry Huggins, which was published in 1950 Beezus and Ramona, Cleary s first novel to feature the Quimby sisters as the central focus of the story, was published in 1955, although Beezus and Ramona made frequent appearances in the Henry Huggins series as supporting characters.In 1940 she married Clarence T Cleary and they moved to Oakland, California The Clearys became parents to a set of twins, Marianne Elisabeth and Malcolm James, in 1955 Clarence Cleary died in 2004 Beverly Cleary currently lives in Carmel, California.She has also written two autobiographies, A Girl from Yamhill and My Own Two Feet.

    1. Well, this is it the lowest rated Beverly Cleary book on my read out loud shelf Henry was a lot endearing in Henry Huggins In Henry and Beezus, he struggles to earn enough money to buy a bike Beezus offers her encouragement and support along the way, and Henry barely appreciates it After all, she s a stupid girl with silly, girly ideas I know Henry is just a kid, and I know it s 1952, but his sexist attitudes got annoying.We read the 1990 edition with new illustrations The kids wear updated clo [...]

    2. This is a supereasy book but also advantageous Advantageous means useful and helpful Two big ideas I found in this book is don t be jealous and work on your own Henry is a teenager who always got jealous of what people had For example, in this summer, he got jealous in what the big showoff Scooter had a bicycle Henry wanted one too, and he tried many ways to trick his parents but failed Therefore, he decided to get one by himself What is he going to do in order to get one Steal NO, he went to wo [...]

    3. Although the title is a bit misleading Beezus really isn t a core character in this story , it was still another delightful, timeless and funny story about the adventures of Henry Huggins The main plot in this book is Henry s desire to get a bike of his own I laughed out loud several times, especially at the antics of Beezus s little sister Ramona, so that makes me think I ll have to read the Ramona books next.

    4. Escape from election year on Klickitat Street.Hearken back to an age when kids wandered around the neighborhood without fear and their biggest fear was not getting gunned down at school like the news and paranoid helipad parents tell them, but was rather how to prepare the shitty bike they won at a police auction again, sans parents for the neighborhood street parade.In his quest to get a bike, Henry suffers through all manner of torments, a mid 20th century Sisyphus who would eat dog food to se [...]

    5. In her third book for middle grade readers, Henry Huggins returns This time he wants a bicycle, another icon of 1950s suburban life His adventures and efforts to procure the bike are shared with Beezus and her little sister Ramona, who feature in some of the later stories.A third grade boy being forced into hanging out with a girl is the issue here Funnily enough, I don t recall it being a big deal if you played with boys or girls when I was that age, but there was only one boy among several gir [...]

    6. This is the second installment of Beverly Cleary s stories about Henry Higgins, this time with quite a lot of Beezus and Ramona tagging along There were seven chapters, each containing a story about Henry 1 Ribsy and the Roast in which Ribsy steals someone s BBQ meat2 Henry Gets Rich in which everyone gets sick of bubble gum3 The Untraining of Ribsy in which Ribsy UNlearns to fetch newspapers4 Henry Parks His Dog in which Henry gets an odd traffic violation5 Beezus Makes a Bid in which Beezus he [...]

    7. As a part of UMHB s READ 3307, I read Henry and Beezus by Beverly Cleary and Tracy Dockray This story tell of the life and struggles of young Henry Huggins as he attempts to earn enough money for a bike This book is very realistic is that it is set in and around Henry s school and neighborhood This problem he faces of how to earn money at his age is one that many children face Not only that but crazy, cheerful, and daring Beezus is just developed so well as to not be such a stereotypical annoyin [...]

    8. I think this was our favorite so far of the Henry Huggins stories The kids laughed out loud at several points in the story Ramona s hijinks were funny than annoying to us anyway and Henry s adventures were at the same time ordinary and just a touch past what the kids have experienced A lifetime supply of bubblegum A dog that learned his trick a little too well and also gets a parking ticket.And of course, the gem that still comes up in conversation at times There goes the boy that ate the dog f [...]

    9. Henry Huggins, Henry and Beezus, Henry and Ribsy, Henry and the Paper Route, Henry and the Clubhouse, and Ribsy I was quite happy to listen to this collection of books It was quitespecial to listen to Beverly Cleary introduce the book and honestly loved listening to Neil Patrick Harris narrate most of the stories What a treasured character I just love remembering from childhood I m happy that I ve been able to introduce my son to Henry Huggins, perfect for his age and life experiences from deali [...]

    10. There is no better comfort re read than Beverly Cleqry, so being home sick I have been burrowing deep in the heart of Klickitat Street Sometimes Henry s dismissal of his loyal friend Beezus is unselfconsciously sexist and annoying, but mostly the story of a boy who is trying to earn enough money for a bicycle with his friends help remarkably undated Also introduces the inimitable Ramona Quimby, who immediately steals any scene she is in.

    11. Cleary s third book, the second Henry Huggins, and although Beezus makes it into the title, it s her little sister who steals the show, insisting on being wound up before she can move, eating only the lions in animal crackers box, generally demonstrating the iconoclasm that resulted in her taking center stage in seven of Cleary s titles Highly recommended.

    14. Henry finds himself in all the usual scrapes in this second go round Most of them are caused by Ribsy Some to do with his overwhelming ambition to have his own bicycle Thankfully there s always Beezus and by extension Ramona around someplace to help make things right again.I love Beverly Cleary s world Told with a lot of humor, these books also hide a lot of understanding about what it s like to be a child, and how to think like someone who is very young I remember feeling much the way Henry did [...]

    15. Cute I mean nothing earth shattering but I love listening to these books with my son, Henry However, poor Henry Huggins seems to not think very highly of himself My cousin told me that she doesn t read these books to her elementary school classroom because the language seems so out dated which it is but I think listening helps overcome that These are just sweet stories I have no doubt that we ll continue reading listening to them.

    16. Just a warning there is spoilers in this review This is a great book for all ages My favorite part in this book was when Henry finds a bunch of bubble gum in the parking lot and shares with everyone The funniest part of this book in my opinion was when Henry hides meat in the bushes and still eats it Overall this is a great book

    17. A classic So nostalgic because Cleary captures childhood so well and my mom read this to me as a child.

    18. I love how delighted Ellery gets every time Beezus Ramona are mentioned in the Henry books We also love how Cleary always puts seemingly innocuous details about something into the story only to have said detail be the solution to Henry s problem or thing that saves the day I ve said it before I ll say it again Beverly Cleary is a national treasure.

    19. I definitely enjoyed rereading Henry and Beezus Unlike the Ramona series, I ve only read the Henry Huggins books once or twice Henry Huggins, our hero, really, really wants a bicycle His parents can t afford to give him one, and, he doesn t expect it of them He doesn t feel entitled to it If only there was a way to earn enough money to buy it himself Henry and The Roast Readers meet Henry and Ribsy, learn of his great desire for a bicycle, and witness Ribsy steal a roast from the neighbor s barb [...]

    21. I ve been re reading my childhood books This was fun What s funny too is the new illustrations with Henry riding his bike He has on a bike helmet I m pretty sure he wouldn t have had one in the illustrations from the 1950s.

    22. I liked it better than the first book But I think Beezus needed scenes since the title says and Beezus.

    27. As much as I like Cleary s stuff, this one is a bit dated and made me a little uncomfortable reading it Henry really wants a bike but can t afford a new one, so he buys one at an auction with the help of Beezus, who accidentally bids on a girl s bike for him Then follows much lamenting of the fact that he has a girl s bike and such Plus, he complains a lot about having to hang out with girls and what a nuisance they can be Not helpful, really, when you re trying to raise a kid to look past this [...]

    28. This was my least favorite so far in our read aloud journey through the Ramona books and now the henry books In this one Henry tries to earn enough money to buy a bike There are some plenty of funny mishapsbut this one engages in gender stereotypes in a way Cleary normally doesn t, and Henry gets teased a lot in a way that borders on mean that isn t present in her other books I prefer the Ramona series a lot of the difference may be due to the time period in which they were written Still love Be [...]

    29. Best parts are the ones that feature Ramona Beezus is a pretty great girl, too Interesting to do the arithmetic on the money, to see which items are relatively affordable in today s dollars bicycle and which have gone up in price ridiculously bubble gum The new illustrations are ok I m just glad they didn t update anything else So, this is the one with the bike auction at the police station, and the untraining of Ribsy to fetch delivered newspapers 1 is the cardboard box on the bus 3 I may not [...]

    30. There are six books in the Henry Huggins series, and this is the second It was in the same style as the first, with each chapter a concentrated story Here we see him try to get out of the main part of the school Christmas play, attempt to acquire a bicycle from a packed auction, and so on.I don t think I m going to seek out the further books in the series, only because I m not the target audience, but if they cross my path as a read aloud to my daughters, I know I d enjoy it alongside them.
