Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Rylant has a real talent for telling a real story in a short easy to read format. Her Henry and Mudge books are perfect. Henry is a real kid who gets bored, unhappy or scared, but with his loving parents and big dog Mudge things always work out. It's a cold, gray Saturday in February and Henry, his Dad and Mudge are bored. Mom has a brilliant idea-she suggests building a castle out of the big boxes in the basement. It is a great project for the entire family and Henry and his Dad in particular. The yucky weekend turns into one of great fun. The watercolors by Stevenson bring the wonderful stories to life, and it is hard to image a Henry and Mudge story without her amusing pictures. Part of the "Read to Read" series this is a level 2 book.1996 (orig.
