Henry Reed, Inc by Keith Robertson

IndieBound Description: This very funny story is Henry's straight-faced journal of his summer activities. Henry, who has an interest in nature and a talent for making things happen, establishes the firm of Henry Reed, Inc., Research, and with neighbor Midge as an ally, engages in a series of projects usually profitable to them, but often hazardous to the adults involved.

My Thoughts:I think the Henry Reed books are classics for summer reading. They perfectly capture those summer days that are filled with adventures of your own making. Make sure you read Henry Reed's Baby-Sitting Service, too. Both books, being all about Henry's summers, kind of inspired my upcoming novel "Dumpling Days."
