Dear Mr. Henshaw 1984 Medal Winner ****

Dear Mr. Henshaw is a book of letters that a boy writes to an author, Mr. Henshaw. The letters reveal the troubles the boy faces changing schools and coping with divorce.

I was surprised this was written by Beverly Cleary the same author who wrote the Ramona books. I expected something light hearted and funny, but instead I found it to be touching and very poignant. It's easy for me to see why this was a Medal Winner. I think a copy of this book should be in every divorce lawyer's office and required reading for every couple seeking a divorce.
