Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Henry's friend Patrick has invited him and a few friends to a sleepover. Each of the boys brings a sleeping bag, a flashlight, and their dog. Mudge is drooling at the opportunity to munch on some popcorn—one of his favorite snacks—and Henry is excited at the prospect of watching scary monster movies. The boys all arrive at Patrick's house and the smart parents have a very special place set up for this sleepover—the attic. The kids have a great time and finally do settle down to sleep. Mudge being a rather large dog has his own sleeping bag, while the other boys snuggle up with their dogs. At the end of the story, it turns out that Mudge is a really big hit because all the other dogs end up snuggling with him. Another delightful glimpse into the life of Henry and his friends and family. A level 2 book in the "Ready-To-Read" series.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-During a sleepover, six boys and their dogs have the run of the attic at Patrick's house. They have a fine time with food, games, videos, and shadows made with their flashlights. Eventually the dogs crawl into their boys' sleeping bags, except for Mudge, who has one of his very own. The text and sentence structure seem simpler than some other Level 2 books, making this title one of the easier ones in the series. Stevenson's colorful cartoons capture the fun-filled antics of the active boys and their pets. All libraries will want to add this book to their beginning-reader collections.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
