Henry and Beezus is a story about a boy named Henry Huggins. Henry wants to get a new bike and showoff Scooter McCarty keeps on teasing him about it. He sees a very nice, shiny, red bike in a bike shop, but he can't afford it. Henry finds a lot with bubble gum in it he takes the gum to school and sells a lot but still does not have enough money to buy the bike. He tries almost everything but still can't get the bike. If you want to find out if Henry gets the bike you'll have to read the book.

I like this book because it reminds me when I wanted a bike. My favorite part is when he finds the gum. I like that part because it is funny. I like this book because it is easy to read.

I recommend this book for people who like funny and surprising stories. I also recommend this book for people who like interesting stories. It is interesting to find out if Henry gets the bike. It is also interesting because of the bubble gum.
