Book Review: Henry and the Clubhouse by: Beverly Cleary

This book may better have been called "Henry and the Clubhouse," but then that was the title of the previous book.  This is the fifth of the Henry books.  Henry and his friends are making a clubhouse, for boys only.  This doesn't sit well with Henry's friend Beezus and her little sister Ramona.  Ramona's retaliation puts Henry's newspaper route at risk.  Plus she is always following him, pretending she is a newspaper man.  One day she follows him, and gets caught in a storm.  The only thing Henry can do is volunteer to take her home, making him late with his deliveries.  However in this case, one of his customers tells on him, and that is a good thing.  She writes of Henry's heroics in a letter-to-the-editor.  Even Henry's dad is impressed.
