Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Henry and his big dog, Mudge, love Christmas. In the three chapters of this early reader, they help bake Christmas cookies, go caroling, and open presents. The whole family gathers for a special Christmas breakfast. As in all of the preceding Henry and Mudge books, Henry's family seems much more realistic than many depicted in children's books. Henry's room is a bit messy, Mudge drools on the floor and helps out baking cookies by licking up everything that spills. Since the family seems more real, the love and joy they share in this Christmas tale is that much more heart-warming. Henry and Mudge fans will delight in this new addition to the series, which was first launched in 1987. A "Ready-to-Read" level 2 book. 2004, Simon & Schuster, Ages 4 to 8.
—Dr. Judy Rowen
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In three chapters, Henry and his 180-pound behemoth of a dog bake cookies for their relatives, go caroling with Uncle Ed and Annie, and open presents and eat breakfast together on Christmas morning. The scene at the table, in which all of the adults "accidentally" drop pancakes, muffins, and ham for Mudge, is priceless. Rylant's words and Stevenson's pictures work together to create a charming and funny holiday title that beginning readers and their grown-ups will savor year-round.-M. A.

From the Publisher
School Library Journal Bravo, Henry and Mudge. May they go on forever!
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—Henry and Mudge are back for a holiday treat in Cynthia Rylant's easy reader (Scholastic, 2004) with a Christmas theme. They are getting ready for the holiday by baking cookies, caroling, and spending time with their family. The sound effects and narration make the story come alive. For example, in one segment listeners hear wood crackling in the fireplace—a sound inspired by Sucie Stevenson's illustration but not mentioned in the text. Suzanne Toren voices each character with different animated tones. Page-turn signals are optional. A great addition to the series.—Katie Llera, Milltown Public Library, NJ

    Perfect for young kids :-)

    My kids love all of these books and this one was a winner just like all the other Henry and Mudge books! Perfect book for little kids, simple but cute. I can see us reading this book in July waiting for Christmas to come!
