Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Henry is excited that his cousin Annie is going to move in next door, but he knows his cousin and fears that she will be worrying about her dresses, shoes and everything else related to the move. Sure enough, Annie is covered with blotches because she is upset. Henry offers a suggestion and Annie goes and snuggles under a blanket in the backseat of the car, and eventually falls asleep nestled up to Mudge. Finally, the move is complete and Annie settles into her new house, comforted by her cousin Henry and his wonderful big dog Mudge. Another delightful story that beginning readers will enjoy.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Suzanne Toren narrates Cynthia Rylant's story (S&S, 1998) with distinctive voices for each character. Henry and Mudge help his cousin Annie feel good about leaving her old house, friends, and school and moving to Henry's neighborhood. Level two readers will easily follow along with the text while listening to the cassette. Gentle background noises add to the presentation. After introducing the title, author, illustrator, and herself, the narrator demonstrates the page-turn signal which is on one side of the cassette. The only problem is that Toren tells youngsters to turn to the first chapter without indicating a page number, which might be confusing for beginning readers. This high quality production would be a worthwhile acquisition for school and public libraries for a classroom group listening center or for independent modeling for English Language Acquisition students or others who are less fluent readers.-Sherrie Davidson, Lyn Knoll Elementary School, Aurora, CO Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Rylant and Stevenson's 18th book in the series is a tenderly humorous tale about a common event in family life. Henry, with a little help from Mudge, comes to the aid of his Cousin Annie, who is moving next door. While Henry and his family are delighted, careful Annie views the move with trepidation. She's so nervous that she has broken out in blotches contemplating moving her frilly dresses, shiny shoes, and lace hankies. Henry offers his time-tested remedy for nervousness: a snuggle under the covers with Mudge. Rylant thoughtfully addresses Annie's dilemma, validating a child's concerns and providing a generous solution. Stevenson's gaily colored pen-and-ink illustrations provide a perfect counterpart to the story, deftly highlighting Annie's vulnerability as well as the humor in Henry and Mudge's antics. (Picture book. 6-8)

    Henry, Mudge, and Annie

    Annie was really nervous when she moved into her new house. It really makes you nervous when you're moving into a new house. I liked it because Annie crawls under the blankets and falls asleep on a handkerchief on Mudge's head. There are lots of other parts I like too. I think kids from 5 to 8 would like this book, especially if they like dogs. If you're moving, bring this book along.
