Publisher's Summary

Dear Mr. Henshaw,

I wish somebody would stop stealing the good stuff out of my lunchbag. I guess I wish a lot of other things, too. I wish someday Dad and Bandit would pull up in front in the rig ... Dad would yell out of the cab, "Come on, Leigh. Hop in and I'll give you a lift to school."

Leigh Botts has been author Boyd Henshaw's number-one fan ever since he was in second grade. Now in sixth grade, Leigh lives with his mother and is the new kid at school. He's lonely, troubled by the absence of his father, a cross-country trucker, and angry because a mysterious thief steals from his lunchbag. Then Leigh's teacher assigns a letter-writing project. Naturally Leigh chooses to write to Mr. Henshaw, whose surprising answer changes Leigh's life.

    Story
    "Witty letter dealing with sincere issue"

    I loved this witty Leah's letter to Mr. Henshaw. He is dealing with serious issue (parents' divorce) yet he handles with wit. I love this novel.

    Story
    "A pretty good book for youngsters"

    In this book, it talks about the boy's family and all those stuffs of wanting to be a writer. In the boy's childhood, he respects Mr.Henshaw but when he grow up, he would sometimes be very rude to Mr. Heshaw
