Editorial Reviews

When Henry, his parents, and faithful pooch Mudge visit Great-Grandpa Bill, they encounter more grand-pas and more fun than they ever imagined.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Fans will welcome another installment in this popular series. In this adventure, Henry and his lovable dog visit Great-Grandpa Bill in the house where he lives with lots of other grandpas. The two friends go exploring and come across a pond that looks like a great place for a swim. Knowing that they should not go in the water alone, they return to the house in search of a buddy. All of the grandpas head off to the pond with the boy and the dog, resting on Mudge whenever they get tired. They all have a great time swimming in their "skivvies" and telling old stories. Brief chapters with entertaining watercolor illustrations make this book an excellent choice for beginning readers ready to make the transition to short chapter books.-Melinda Piehler, Sawgrass Elementary School, Sunrise, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

This is a light hearted book about a boy's trip to visit his Great Grandfather who lives in a retirement home. It is easy reading. It was on my son's summer reading list between first and second grade. He really enjoyed it.

Henry's parents take him and his dog, Mudge, to visit his Great-Grandpa Bill, who lives in a home for elderly grandpas. Henry and Mudge play games with the grandpas and they even enjoy a nice swim. I thought this book is a great read for younger students, because it is realistic and fun. The words presented in the text are challenging, but not to hard for this level of reader.
