Henry Reed, Inc.
This is the fun, cleverly written story of 14-year-old Henry Reed, who has come to stay with his aunt and uncle for the summer. He and his new friend Midge spend the summer coming up with moneymaking plans, most of which go very wrong. Boys and girls will enjoy reading about Henry’s adventures selling turtles, drilling for oil, hunting for truffles, and even creating a weather balloon to sell to the armed forces! Although it is an easier read, it promotes morals such as hard work, responsibility, kindness to animals, friendship, creativity, and love of nature. Some of the other books in the series portray some mild, disrespectful behavior as acceptable, but this first book in the series, Henry Reed, Inc., does not.
