    1. This closes out the Henry Reed series. Five adventures, covering three summers in the youth of an American boy who visits his aunt and uncle in rural New Jersey.Time for a quick round of "compare and contrast"; this book comes after a 16 year gap from his fourth tale, and I feel it shows in a lot of ways.First, in the details: Henry's world in Henry Reed, Inc. is 1958, with writing done by typewriter and reproduction by a print shop; travel for kids by foot, bicycle or sometimes horse. Families [...]


    2. Having grown to a man's estate one of the things I appreciate most about a children's book is when it includes a subtext for adults; and the Henry Reed series is marvelous at this task. While the younger children laugh with Henry and Midge's adventures and misadventures, the older children and adults can laugh along with Uncle Al's running commentary and comparisons between Henry and his mother.Another very enjoyable part of this book and this series was the glimpse back into another culture; on [...]


    3. Thus is a story of times gone by. Think tanks are a term of the past that some still long for. and this is New England's answer to Mayberry U.S.A. It's just so old fashioned that its a bit dated and yet something we tend to miss. The kids charge for their " brilliant" ideas But are totally clueless when it comes to others feelings and needs Priceless!


    4. We ended up reading this final Henry Reed book out of order, ahead of the one that precedes it, but it was still fine. Really great series. I'd recommend it to those who have enjoyed the Little House books and the Great Brain series. I was pleasantly surprised that this installment, written many years later than the original books, was still quite fresh and fit nicely with its predecessors.


    5. Since I could not remember any time travel in Henry Reed (and I'm sorry to say that there isn't any, Anamaria), and I am always longing to reread some of my favorites in the spring, I brought home this last book in the series. Henry is spending another summer in Grover's Corners, since his parents are in Manila (!) and want him to have access to "American activities" like baseball games and decent hamburgers and milkshakes. He and Midge decide to try a different business, and since consulting is [...]


    6. As usual with any book starring the amazing Henry Reed and Midge Glass, I loved this book! Only these two characters would think of the plots they put into action. One thing I really like about these books is the way there are multiple side plots running together in each chapter. An amazing book - no other way to put it. If you want some light hearted reading that will make it feel like summer, no matter what the weather, this is a book for you!



    7. Another fun children's book from a (not-to-distant) bygone era okay--this one was published in the 80s!. I like Henry. I like Midge.


    8. I liked it. It's about how they have a think tank and they solve people problems like one girl wants to get a bigger allowance. So they make a survey and she gets a bigger allowance.
