Dear Mr. Henshaw Literature Unit

By Beverly Cleary

Leigh has been writing to his favorite author, Mr. Henshaw, since he was in second grade. Now in sixth grade, Leigh is assigned to do an author report and naturally chooses to send his questions to Mr. Henshaw. The author replies with some silly answers, but unexpectedly, his response also includes some questions for Leigh to answer. Initially Leigh is angry and refuses to do any extra work, but at his mother’s request, he takes the time to answer the questions. This book is told entirely through Leigh’s letters to Mr. Henshaw, as well as his journal entries. Gradually his letters reveal the difficulties in his life, like his parents’ divorce, being the new kid at school, and having a neglectful father. By writing his thoughts on paper, Leigh is able to overcome some of these difficulties and come to terms with the ones he cannot control. Dear Mr. Henshaw contains humor and sadness as Leigh matures and learns that no matter how bad things seem, life will go on.
