it was amazing
Read in December, 2008

Out of all the Beverly Cleary books this is definetly one of the best! I read this book in a half hour. It felt like I was a fly on the wall in every scene of the book.
Dear Mr. Henshaw was about Leigh, a boy in a mixed up life that just wanted someone to talk to. With his mom busy with work and such, and his dad, that hasn't been with Leigh or Leigh's mom in a very long time, there was no one to talk to. So, in school he loves to read and he loves to read books especially by Mr. Henshaw. So he starts writing and writing and writing to his favorite author. Sure enough Mr. Henshaw writes back.
Now Leigh didn't write how much he loved Mr.Henshaw or ask him questions. He simply told him his whole life story. Soon Mr. Henshaw was not just an inspiring author, he was a friend to Leigh.Beverly Cleary has hit the nail on the head with this one.
