Description

This high-quality Spanish-language book can be enjoyed by fluent Spanish speakers as well as those learning the language, whether at home or in a classroom.

La vida cambia para Henry Huggins con la aparición de Ribsy, un perro flaco y desgarbado que encuentra un día a la salida de la Y.M.C.A. Juntos corren toda clase de aventuras, desde perder un hermoso balón de fútbol, hastacelebrar una Navidad "verde". Con Ribsy aprende el valor del trabajo, el respeto a la propiedad ajena y también que todos merecemos ganar un premio, incluso un perro feúcho y de raza desconocida. Pero lo más importante para Henry será averiguar con quién decidirá quedarse Ribsy.



About the Author

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up.

Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.



Louis Darling was an illustrator, writer, and environmentalist who was born and lived most of his life in Connecticut. His illustrations filled the pages of Beverly Cleary’s books until his death in 1970. His work is celebrated and immortalized by generations of fans.
