Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Henry and his Dad have an unusual custom—they prepare an unusual lunch for Henry's Mom each Mother's Day. Dad makes a list and they all go shopping. Mudge gets to go into the store because the owner is a cousin of Henry's Dad (still there are issues in my mind of sanitation and whether a dog should be in a grocery store). Once the supplies are procured the team heads back home to whip up their concoction. It is going to be a pineapple sofa. The illustrations are cute and may give kids some wonderful ideas for creating people and animals from fruits and vegetables. Mom is delighted and more than willing to share her delicious pineapple sofa with all the family including a drooling Mudge. This is a Level 2 book in the "Ready-To-Read" series. Carolyn Bracken has managed to illustrate the book in Suçie Stevenson's style which should make young readers very happy since they have come to know and love this delightful family (more than two million copies of Henry and Mudge stories have been sold). 2004, Simon & Schuster, Ages 5 to 7.

My sons (ages 4 and 7), love Henry and Mudge stories! A beautiful story about a boy and his big, floppy, drooling dog and their adventrues together. Well written. The author has a talent for seeing the world through the simple eyes of a child. Adorable and heartwarming!
