By Maryann Yin Comment

The childhood home of Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary is on the market.

The asking price of this property has been listed at $362,000. According to OregonLive, the real estate brokers who are handling the sale will allow students from the Beverly Cleary School to tour the house.

Here’s more from the article: “[Cleary] famously used her childhood surroundings as inspiration for her books for children and young adults. The house on Hancock is just blocks from Klickitat Street, the fictional home of Henry Huggins and Ramona and Beezus Quimby. It’s also near Beverly Cleary School and the Beverly Cleary Sculpture Garden at Grant Park.” (Image via)
