Henry and Beezus

Series: Henry Huggins
by Beverly Cleary Illustrated by Louis Darling

All Henry Huggins wants is his very own bicycle, a shiny red one to ride up and down Klickitat Street. But no matter how Henry tries to raise money for the bike of his dreams — from selling bubble gum to delivering newspapers — he always ends up with too much trouble and not enough money. But Henry's old friend Beezus has an idea that may turn Henry's worst trouble yet into a real business success!
