Beverly Cleary - on the occasion of her 95th birthday

The first time we read a Henry Huggins book my sons were four, six, seven and eight. They, and I,  were so enchanted by Henry's adventures, that I wrote Beverly Cleary a thank you note - for writing stories which rambunctious young boys found laugh-out-loudable .  About that time I also wrote a fan letter to Bob Keeshan - aka Captain Kangaroo.

Dare I say that was 48 years ago?  I received  a reply from each.  Wish I had saved them.
