Review:

I thought this book showed a lot of feeling and action to Mr.Henshaw and Leigh's dad. Someone keeps stealing the good stuff out of his lunch bag. So he made a burglar alarm which I thought was cool. I'm going to try to read another one of your books after I read Ramona Quimby Age 8 with my class. This is my favorite book and I felt I just needed to do a book report on it. I think I'm going to get an A+ on it.

I loved that in the book he was writing letters to Mr. Henshaw. Mr. Henshaw should have replied more (my opinion).
