Dear Mr. Henshaw

Written by Beverly Cleary

Reviewed by Cevak H. (age 12)

This story is about a boy named Leigh Botts. His teacher told him to write to a famous author. He wrote to Mr. Henshaw. Leigh Botts and Mr. Henshaw write to each other.

I like this book because it is like making a friend, but he is famous. My favorite part is when Leigh and his dad meet. I liked when Leigh and his dad are standing and looking at each other. Leigh asks his dad if he has seen any shoes on the highway lately?

I would recommend this book to anybody that likes to write letters.
