One of my favorite books as a kid was "Ellen Tibbets" by Beverly Cleary. This book about Ribsy brings the memories back of reading about Ellen and her friends. Cleary has a gift for writing books from the perspective of children and pets. This edition of "Ribsy" included an excerpt from "Socks", which will be one I will enjoy as I love cats!

April 12th, 2016 will be Beverly Cleary's 100th Birthday. As a child she had a difficult time reading and writing until she met a kindly librarian. When she herself, became a librarian, a young boy asked for books about children like him. This started Cleary's writing career. Ribsy is the story of a mutt who becomes separated from Henry, his owner and the family, he loves.

I did not read this book, but I give it four stars because my reluctant reader 10 year old son said it was "better than most chapter books." The fact that he actually read it all the way through without complaining speaks volumes.
