Read full description of the books:
The world of Henry Huggins centers around Klickitat Street and the Glenwood School. It is people with his dog Ribsy, other boys, and—unavoidably—girls. Beezus, christened Beatrice but renamed by her little sister Ramona, is the girl that Henry find least obnoxious. She is, he has to admit, a sensible girl. He even lets her come along with him occasionally, although this mean that Ramona has to come too.
Ramona is Henry's chief cross. Henry thinks she is dumb—and yet he sometimes wonders. How would they ever have escaped from old Mrs. Wisser if Ramona hadn't thrust a slimy garden slug at her?
But Henry can solve his own problems, too. Over all obstacles, he obtains the shiny red bicycle of his desire and pedals out of sight, at the end of this delectable book, with his spokes twinkling in the sunshine and the snap-on tail of his coonskin cap fluttering in the breeze.

Read information about the authorBeverly 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.
