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.

Once again my niece shared one of her school book buddy books. Great illustrations that go along with a wonderful story.

Hooray! Josiah read this whole book to ME! I had a migraine coming and told him I couldn't read to him anymore, that I needed to go lie down & wait for the medicine to work. Then, ten minutes later, he shows up with this book and tells me he can read it to me. So that's what we did. Thank you, Cynthia Rylant, for giving us a funny, readable, "chapter book" that had us giggling and grinning.

This is a fun book about family reunions. We've read most of the Henry and Mudge books and we are just finishing the series. Henry and his family attend a family reunion at Annie's house and much kissing and hugging ensues.

Who can go wrong with a Henry and Mudge story? This particular one is about Henry and Mudge preparing for a family reunion and meeting all of their aunts and uncles and cousins.

That I like Mudge much better than the rest of his family.

My last little human has found a series he likes.
