Item Description...
Lonely, especially since he is the new kid in school, Leigh Botts begins writing letters to his favorite author, Mr. Henshaw, describing his life since his parent's divorce, and through these letters he finds comfort, compassion, and a knack for writing, in a poignant Newbery Medal-winning novel. Reissue.

Publishers Description

Dear Mr. Henshaw,

I wish somebody would stop stealing the good stuff out of my lunchbag. I guess I wish a lot of other things, too. I wish someday Dad and Bandit would pull up in front in the rig ... Dad would yell out of the cab, "Come on, Leigh. Hop in and I'll give you a lift to school."

Leigh Botts has been author Boyd Henshaw's number one fan ever since he was in second grade. Now in sixth grade, Leigh lives with his mother and is the new kid at school. He's lonely, troubled by the absence of his father, a cross-country trucker, and angry because a mysterious thief steals from his lunchbag. Then Leigh's teacher assigns a letter-writing project. Naturally Leigh chooses to write to Mr. Henshaw, whose surprising answer changes Leigh's life.

More About Beverly Cleary

Beverly Cleary Beverly Cleary is one of America's most popular authors. Born in McMinnville, Oregon, she lived on a farm in Yamhill until she was six and then moved to Portland. After college, as the children's librarian in Yakima, Washington, she was challenged to find stories for non-readers. She wrote her first book, Henry Huggins, inresponse to a boy's question, "Where are the books about kids like us?"

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the Amercan Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature.

Her Dear Mr. Henshaw was awarded the 1984 John Newbery Medal, and both Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. In addition, her books have won more than thirty-five statewide awards based on the votes of her young readers. Her characters, including Henry Huggins, Ellen Tebbits, Otis Spofford, and Beezus and Ramona Quimby, as well as Ribsy, Socks, and Ralph S. Mouse, have delighted children for generations. Mrs. Cleary lives in coastal California.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent novel  Apr 14, 2008
Lee is a lonely little boy dealing with his parents' divorce. He begins a correspondence with his favorite author, Mr. Henshaw. This letter writing helps Lee understand himself better.

I read this to my classes every year when we are learning about letter writing. It is a powerful novel that kids can relate to.
Great Realistic Fiction! By JS from North Boulevard  Nov 21, 2007
The book I am reviewing is written by Beverly Cleary. It is a great book named Dear Mr. Henshaw. It is a book about a boy named Leigh Botts, he writes letters to his favorite author Mr.Henshaw. He writes about many of his problems such as his parents' divorce and trouble at school. I think this book deserves four stars because I like reading about realistic problems and people. I recommend this book to people who like realistic fiction in grades 3-5. Beverly Cleary also writes many stories like Ramona the Pest and Mouse and the motorcycle.

Dear Mr.henshaw=#1  Jul 25, 2007
The beginning made me wonder so I wanted to read on.
The middle answered all my questions.
The ending was sad and happy at the same time.
This is why I liked Dear Mr.Henshaw!!!!!
Dear Mr.Henshaw  Jun 14, 2007
I just finished reading a book called "Dear Mr.Henshaw". I think that it's just a waist of time writing letters. Some characters in the story are Leigh Botss, Mr.henshaw and Biscuit the dog. I think it's really interesting book. I liked the book because it's easy to read the book. It is no that complicated to read I also loved it because. It's too funny sad, and boring at times. I also thought that I would hate the book. But, once I opened and read it, I loved it so much. I also loved it because my friend recommended this book to me. I think the book is interesting to read.
Hated this book  Jun 12, 2007
I strongly disliked this book. this probably was one of the worst books I have ever read. The reason I somewhat enjoyed this book was making fun of it in class with my friend. I thought it was stupid and was boring. Don't read this Dear Mr. Henshaw, unless you like to mock of books.
