Beverly Cleary's clever story about Henry, a preteen boy learning to tackle responsibility, is more humorous as told by Neil Patrick Harris. He does an excellent job portraying the different characters, ranging from an obnoxious 4-year-old to an older boy with a lisp and a stern paper route manager. Cleary's story puts Henry in several entertaining predicaments, all of which remain truthful over the decades since its first publication. Listeners will find themselves smiling and laughing out loud, thanks to Harris's smooth delivery. Each character is brought to life as Harris imparts Mr. Huggins's voice, Ramona's emotions, and Henry's demeanor. M.J.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
