Beloved children's author Beverly Cleary will celebrate her 100th birthday this April. To honour the occasion, three of her most popular titles will get a re-release featuring an exclusive interview with Cleary and brand-new forewords from three amazing authors.
Amy Poehler, Judy Blume, and Kate DiCamillo will write the forewords for the new editions of Ramona Quimby, Age 8, Henry Huggins and The Mouse and the Motorcycle. Henry Huggins is the oldest title to get the honour - the first in a series, it was originally published in 1950.
All three titles will be available in Canada on January 26th. A read-aloud edition of Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and a new edition of Cleary's 1988 memoir A Girl From Yamhill will hit shelves in April.
