But first Henry has to prove to his parents he can handle the responsibility. That won't be easy with Ramona Quimby around! Then when the boys form a clubhouse excluding girls, Henry's friendship with Beezus is tested and the girls wreak their hilarious revenge. All of Henry's most memorable adventures are here including riding to the dump in a bathtub and getting his first bike. Along the way, with the "help" of Ramona, he learns some valuable lessons about friendship and maturity. Henry and Ramona captures the everyday trials and triumphs of being a kid. One ext. set.
