Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Henry had never met his cousin Annie who was coming for an overnight stay. He brushed his beloved dog, Mudge, and hoped that Annie would be fun. His first impression left him feeling anxious, however, because Annie arrived attired in a frilly dress and indicated she did not want Mudge drooling on her. Later, Henry knew he had done the wrong thing when he offered her fudge cookies from a dust covered paper bag he kept under his bed. Nevertheless, he kept trying to be friendly, and Annie did too. At last, they decided to play Frisbee. Henry showed Annie how to throw the Frisbee, and she was a natural. She began to overlook the dog drool on the Frisbee and even requested the fudge cookies from under the bed. When Annie left the next day, she and Henry looked forward to their next visit. The warm cozy feeling that pervades the "Henry and Mudge books" continues here. Beginning readers will learn the importance of patience in developing a new friendship. Stevenson's watercolor illustrations are expressive and provide clues to the text. 1997 (orig.
School Library Journal
Kr-Gr 3-A realistic portrayal of life with a BIG, drooling dog and a happy-go-lucky kid who keeps cookies under his bed and lets his fish tank get a little smelly. However, this reality is almost too much for dressed up and proper Cousin Annie-until she discovers her natural talent for playing Frisbee. For the 13th time, Rylant and Stevenson have combined their talents for an on-target, simple story of the everyday adventures of a boy and his dog. Their humor and charming characters are appealing to both beginning readers and adults, making it a tossup as to who will love Henry and Mudge more. Sure to be as popular as its predecessors.-Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-When Henry sees his cousin Annie get out of the car in her clean, frilly dress and shiny shoes, he is worried how she will accept his dog, big drooly Mudge, and their rough and tumble ways. It is not until their Frisbee game that Annie really accepts them and a wonderful time is had by all. Cynthia Rylant's book (S&S, 1994) is read by John Beach in a clear and expressive voice. Each character sounds a bit different, making it easy for young listeners to distinguish between them. A swishing sound of a page turning, which is explained at the beginning of the tape, prompts listeners to turn the page. The second side of the tape reads the book straight through. Slight background music at the beginning and end of each chapter adds interest. Schools and public libraries will find this useful and very popular for beginning readers and younger children who just want to hear more Mudge stories.-Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
