I thought it was a very interesting book. I really liked it. My favorite part was when Henry caught the salmon. He caught it with his hands! I liked Ribsy, too. He was not trying to be a bad dog; he was just trying to protect Henry's stuff. The pictures were good, too. I liked the way they were drawn, and the way the pictures matched the story.
I think mainly second graders that are in a gifted class or third graders would like to read the book. It has 192 pages, so some people may not want to read a book that long. I think the part they would like the best is where Henry catches the salmon with his hands because he catches it with his hands and he's only a kid. It was also cool when he finally caught it because he picked it up very hard.
