Henry Huggins is tired of sitting around peeling the covering off a golfball. He wants to do something important. He wants a paper route like Scooter. Sure that he can convince Mr. Capper he can handle the job, Henry goes to the route manager's house intending to show him how grown-up he is. But instead of a paper route, Henry comes home with a jacket full of kittens. Scooter lets Henry help with his paper route, but gets mad about the entrepreneurial initiative Henry shows. And to make matters worse, Henry is forced to accept help from a girl and her pesky little monkey-tailed sister. At this rate, how will Henry ever get a paper route? Listeners of all ages will be tickled by Henry's earnest but bumbling ways. And middle grade readers will relate to Henry's quest for a position of responsibility. Narrator Jeff Woodman, with his flair for young male characters, brings out the full force of Henry's charming personality.
