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

Tate says, "It was impressive that Henry and Mudge caught 42 tumbleweeds!"
Henry and Mudge go on a vacation to the west.
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.
-travel, wild west, cowboys, friendship, family
-students could read with a pertner
-complete a vocabulary study of unfamiliar words (eg tumbleweed)
-study the wild west and cowboys, research what cowboys really do
-research flora and fauna of the west
-geography lesson- map the western US, regions
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.
He can almost clean up his whole room, cuz he can clean up lots of tumbleweeds.
Logan: 5 stars.
