Summary

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.

This book is great! May 22, 2011

It's a wonderful textbook for kids, but also a terrific read for adults. I enjoyed reading through this textbook as the letter format of each "chapter" would make the reading easier for younger readers, and would suggest other books written by Beverly Cleary. I recommend this cheap textbook to ages 8 and up. I loved this textbook and hope you love it too.
