Henry Huggins couldn't wait until he turned eleven years old so he could have a paper route like his friend Scooter. He was sure he could prove to the route manager that he was responsible enough to handle the job as well as anyone. Henry did come up with some very imaginative ideas for selling papers - except giving away free kittens with newspaper subscriptions didn't get him a single customer. And Henry's great advertising scheme helped his class win the newspaper drive, but he still didn't have a paper route. Who would have guessed that it would be Ramona Quimby making a real pest of herself, who would cause Henry to get the job he wanted so much! Ages 8 to 12.
