Newbery Medal Winner * Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children * ALA Notable Children's Book

Beverly Cleary's timeless Newbery Medal-winning book explores difficult topics like divorce, insecurity, and bullying through the thoughts and emotions of a sixth-grade boy as he writes to his favorite author, Boyd Henshaw. 

After his parents separate, Leigh Botts moves to a new town with his mother. Struggling to make friends and deal with his anger toward his absent father, Leigh loses himself in a class assignment in which he must write to his favorite author. When Mr. Henshaw responds, the two form an unexpected friendship that will change Leigh's life forever.

From the beloved author of the Henry Huggins, Ramona Quimby, and Ralph S. Mouse series comes an epistolary novel about how to navigate and heal from life's growing pains.

Industry Reviews

[Her] sense of humor leavens and lightens ..."-- "School Library Journal""Capably and unobtrusively structured as well as valid and realistic."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
