Henry Huggins really wants his father to take him fishing--especially since that obnoxious Scooter McCarthy keeps bragging about this big fishing trip. But Henry's dog Ribsy has been misbehaving lately--everything from running off with the neighbor's barbecue roast to stealing a policeman's lunch. Mr. Huggins says there will be no fishing trip unless Henry can keep Ribsy out of trouble.
It won't be easy, but Henry is determined that Ribsy will stay on his best behavior. No chasing cats, no ripping up lawns...and no getting anywhere near little Ramona Quimby, whos name spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E!
