Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Henry's Uncle Jake loves to visit and he also enjoys Henry's dog, Mudge. One day Uncle Jack has a big surprise for Henry—he builds him a tree house. It really is neat, but Henry finds it pretty lonesome up there, because Mudge can't make the climb. After a few repeated trips to visit inside with Mudge, his family figures out that something is wrong. The solution is intriguing and will only work for kids if their bedroom is big enough, which apparently Henry's is. The other more obvious solution would be to build the "tree house" on the ground. It is a simple story for Henry and Mudge fans and kudos to Carolyn Bracken for maintaining the style of the original characters. Part of the "Ready-to-Read" series, this is a level 2 for kids reading independently. 2002, Simon and Schuster,

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-When Uncle Jake builds Henry a beautiful tree house, there is a big problem-Mudge cannot climb trees. Unwilling to hurt his uncle's feelings, the boy tries staying in the structure for short periods, then getting down to be with his dog. When the grown-ups notice what is going on, they come up with the perfect solution-the tree house is rebuilt in Henry's bedroom so boy and dog can enjoy it together. The family dynamics are sensitive, warm, and funny. Pen-and-ink and watercolor art illustrates the action, and the final spread on which the tree house is next to Henry's bed is just unexpected enough to elicit giggles. A welcome addition to a deservedly popular series.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
