Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
The latest chapter in this author's Henry and Mudge series is a winner. In this Ready-to-Read Level 2 book, the dynamic duo buy a spy kit and have a great time looking for clues in the neighborhood. Henry wears spyglasses and Mudge dons a spy hat as they venture out in search of intrigue. "Try not to look like you're spying," Henry urges Mudge, and the faithful dog complies when he rolls around in a puddle and chews on a rock. The special relationship between boy and dog shines through in this sweet, laugh-out-loud story. The upbeat illustrations fit the text like a hand and its glove. Henry and Mudge are endearing and lovable characters. What a wonderful way to get children hooked on reading!
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2--In this latest installment about a boy and his oversized pup, Henry empties his piggy bank and buys a spy kit. He wears the dark glasses himself and puts the hat on Mudge. While spying around the neighborhood, they discover a paper with a coded message near some trash cans. Henry takes it home, thinks about it for a bit, decodes it, and then sends a return message. After several exchanges, Henry and Mudge meet the other spy who also has a dog in disguise. Calling themselves "Crackers" for being good at cracking codes, the boys form a club and carry real crackers in their pockets for ID. Rylant tells the story in a concise format while maintaining a sense of humor and flow of words. The combination of the text and Stevenson's colorful, expressive illustrations makes this book more than just a beginning reader--preschoolers will welcome this duo into storyhour programs.-Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY

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!

This is a great book if you like spies. The main characters are Henry and Mudge. Henry has a neat spy kit; it has a magnifying glass and glasses and a flashlight. The illustrations are really animated, and the colors are bright.
