More hilarious adventures as Henry becomes a bubble gum tycoon. Henry Huggins is friends with Beezus Quimby -- even though she's a girl and has a pesky little sister. Her name is Ramona, and she's got a way of causing trouble. When Henry finds a bonanza of gum balls, Beezus helps him take them to school to sell. She knows he's trying to earn money for a bike. Henry's best chance to get one comes when there's an auction for lost bikes at the police station. He sets off to buy a red one, but Beezus and Ramona tag along -- and Ramona brings a fat slimy garden slug . . . . In her first book, Henry Huggins, Beverly Cleary created funny, endearing characters and situations that left readers asking for more. In this second adventure, Henry tries to get the bike he longs for, and readers laugh while hoping that Henry's dreams come true. Includes an excerpt from Henry and Ribsy. The world of Henry Huggins centers around Klickitat Street and Glenwood School. It is peopled with his dog, Ribsy, other boys, and -unavoidably-girls. Beezus, christened Beatrice but renamed by her little sister Ramona, is the girl that Henry finds least obnoxious.
