This is an amazing children's novel, it was one of my very favorites growing up. A young boy gets an assignment to write to an author, and that starts up a correspondance with Mr. Henshaw. This book is hilarious and very well written, and ever since reading it in this book I've used the "Deliver De Letter / De sooner de better / de later de letter / de madder I getter" :) Great for young children, it's fun and encourages reading as a fun activity beyond school assignment.
