Henry Huggins's dog, Ribsy, has been getting into all kinds of trouble on Klickitat Street: chasing the neighbors' cat, tearing up lawns, even stealing a policeman's lunch. So when Henry asks his dad if he can go along on the big fishing trip, Mr. Huggins agrees, on one condition: Ribsy has to learn to behave himself first.

Henry feels sure this will be easy--after all, Ribsy is a good dog at heart--but Ribsy can't seem to stop sniffing out scrapes. Whether he's terrorizing the garbageman or gobbling Ramona Quimby's ice cream cone, Ribsy's a handful--and it takes all of Henry's ingenuity to come up with a solution.

Beverly Cleary delivers a winning tale of a boy and his loyal best friend.
