Fiery Ramona Quimby and the well-meaning Henry Huggins may clash, but in this delightful and hilariously told novel by Newbery Medalâ??winning author Beverly Cleary, an unlikely compromise wins the day.
Henry and his friends are building a no-girls-allowed clubhouse. With a private space of their own away from everyone elseâ??and even a top-secret entry passwordâ??theyâ??re all thrilled with their boy fort.
But Henryâ??s about to find out that nothingâ??not even a signâ??will keep gutsy Ramona out of their clubhouseâ?¦and her retaliation may just ruin Henryâ??s newspaper career.

"Neil Patrick Harris (who played Doogie Howser) narrates this old favorite in a well-modulated, expressive voice with spot-on pacing. While he has Henry down pat, some of his other characterizations miss the mark. Beezus sometimes sounds like a middle-aged woman, and Ramona mostly sounds like an old man who has smoked too many cigarettes. Cleary's books have endured because she thoroughly understands how children experience the world, and she writes with a ticklish humor that never condescends. Henry builds a clubhouse, tackles a paper route, and tries to survive the ever pestering Ramona. In the end, to his amazement, it's Ramona who helps him reach his most important goals. An interview with the author is a perfect finish to this audiobook. E.S. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
