Children's LiteratureHenry 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.
