Henry and Mudge books are great! Especially if your child enjoys dogs. This is one of the better ones (although we've read just about all of them thus far and they are all good) this one we giggled and smiled through it all. Henry and his family go on a trip to "The West" Where everyone is taller (because of the boots) and every thing is bigger "Mudge size" They get to chase tumbleweeds that the wind throws for them! What fun! But as much fun that they have fun on vacation they enjoy getting bac ...more

My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series and were excited to find out what would happen as we started each one. Because my son was between 5-6 years old (he's an advanced reader) at the time, he easily identified with Henry and loved Mudge because (1) he desperately wanted a dog, and (2) Mudge's goofiness was endearing AND hilarious.

My 7 year old son recently borrowed this book from his school library.

This is book #27 in the series, but you do not have to read the books in order to understand what is going on. Each book could be stand alones.

In this installment, Henry, Mudge, and Henry's parents go on a vacation to The Wild West. They noticed along the way that the land got flatter and the skies got bigger. They stayed at The Cowboy Inn where the owner gave Henry a cowboy hat and gave Mudge a bandanna. Henry and Mudge spe

A book my 6 yr old loved, a little old for my preschoolers. A solid reading level 4 book, this reader has a good amount of advanced vocabulary words, but not so long that it discourages a new reader. Used it for his read out loud book, which was perfect. It took about 20 mins for him to read and had just enough new vocabulary words to make it challenging. Also, it was a fun and interesting story he could get into. He liked it so much, he asked for more by this author. Great reading book!

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
This is a fun book in the "Henry and Mudge" series. Henry's family visits the Wild West and Henry and Mudge have a great time chasing tumbleweeds. Though there are several new and unfamiliar words, this is a great book for a beginning reader to read aloud with a parent. We've read this one a couple of times.

My son loves all the Henry and Mudge books. I love that the books in this series stand alone.

Another quick and easy Henry and Mudge book. Good for my 3.5 year old. He likes them but I can't imagine their going to be any kid's favorite. I would give them 3.5 stars if I could.
Arlen
Great sense of humor about Mudge.
