Item description for Ribsy (Avon Camelot Books) by Beverly Cleary & Jacqueline Rogers...
Overview Separated from his owner, Henry Huggins, in a shopping center parking lot, an ordinary city dog begins a string of bewildering adventures.
Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary gives Henry's dog, Ribsy, the center stage in this dog's-eye view of the adventure of a lifetime.
Good ol' Ribsy's ever-curious mind has always gotten him into scrapes, but this time he may have gone too far. After a comical turn of events, Ribsy finds himself in the wrong station wagon with the wrong children. Ribsy will do anything to find Henry, but there's plenty of excitement to be had along the way--and scoring a touchdown for a local high school team is only part of the fun

Reviews - What do customers think about Ribsy (Avon Camelot Books)?
Classic 50's children's book is timeless Jan 15, 2008
Ribsy is one of Beverly Cleary's series on the children of Klikitat Street in Portland Oregon. It is pure 50's childhood and very entertaining. I use this as an independent reading selection for groups of my fourth grade ESL students. They can easily read it on their own, helping one another on the vocabulary, and they stay interested. All have asked to take it home to finish it. If you're a teacher who is looking to keep your class occupied while you hone in on students with learning problems, then let them read any of this series and they will let you work with your group for a half hour without interruption.
If you're looking for a good gift for a child in 3d, 4th or 5th grade, this is one.
Great author! May 9, 2007
I purchased this book for my daughter who loves reading Beverly Cleary books. I read her books, too, when I was little. I have purchased just about every book she has written!
A Great Dog Tale Mar 12, 2007
My 7 year old grandson and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Ribsy while driving. In fact my grandson would beg me to stay in the parked car once we were home so he could continue to listen. Of course I couldn't do that because I had to know what was happening next to Ribsy also. It's a delightful story for both young and slightly older ears.
great story Jul 25, 2006
Ribsy is an excellent story my girls enjoyed listening to. They like to hear stories more than once, and this is one I don't mind hearing repeated! The packaging of the CD set is made of paper and I don't think will last over time and use.
Ribsy Dec 6, 2005
The main idea is Ribsy the dog was gotten himself hopelessly lost in huge shopping mall parking lot in a rainstorm. Ribsy runs all over looking for the Huggins` family car.
Detail one. One if the detail is when Ribsy got a bubble bath!! Joy folly sally and Lisa began to swish their hand in the water to make bubbles, lot of them. Giving a dog a bath was fun, but was even more fun. Eight hands and a whole bottle of bubble bath can make a lot of bubbles. The girls screamed with pleasure as Ribsy found him surrounded by billows of bubbles that were rising higher and higher.
Detail two. The second detail is when Ribsy when to all club for ladies. The ladies of the club all gasped and applauded at him that he dropped his pipe. Mrs. Frawley picked it up and poked it into his mouth once more. "Sit up Rags, "She directed. "Sit up boy. Obediently Ribsy sat up. All the ladies laughed. Isn't that cute? They murmured. Isn't that adorable. Just like a little old man."
Detail three. The third detail is at the lunchtime Ribsy got in line and went to the cafeteria where he finished the sandwiches of those. Who asked him to-except peanut-butter sandwiches? These Ribsy would sniff and politely refuse. Peanut-butter stuck to his teeth. After lunch he lay at the back of the room with his nose on his paws, waiting for school to be out so that he could play with anyone who wanted to play with a friendly dog. It was a pleasant life of a dog.
My conclusion. I did like the book because; I don't like to read books. But if you do like to read I recommend this book for you.
