Clever Mischief

$42.00Price

Homer Price, by Robert McCloskey:

Welcome to Centerburg! Where you can win a hundred dollars by eating all the doughnuts you want; where houses are built in a day; and where a boy named Homer Price can foil four slick bandits using nothing but his wits and pet skunk. The comic genius of Robert McCloskey and his wry look at small-town America never fails to keep readers in stitches throughout the book!

 

Henry Huggins, by Beverly Cleary:

In the first novel from Newbery Medal–winning author Beverly Cleary, boys and girls alike will be charmed instantly by an average boy whose life is turned upside down when he meets a lovable puppy with a nose for mischief. Just as Henry Huggins is complaining that nothing exciting ever happens, a friendly dog sits down beside him and looks pleadingly at his ice-cream cone. From that moment on, the two are inseparable. But when Ribsy's original owner appears, trying to reclaim his dog, Henry's faced with the possibility of losing his new best friend. Has Klickitat Street seen the last of rambunctious Ribsy?

 

Homer and Henry may seem similar, but they face completely different predicaments! Homer must figure out how to eat numerous amounts of doughnuts and Henry wants a new pet. Have you ever wanted a new pet? Or broken a doughnut machine? We will discover what clever mischief really is and what constitutes it through the adventures in these two books! You won’t want to miss it!
