Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Mudge is one big puppy and he also has a big appetite. When Henry is munching a snack, Mudge tags along because he wants some too. He tries getting on Henry's lap, licking his head and any other trick he can think of. Henry keeps saying No! His final tricks win Henry over and off they head to the kitchen where Henry gets a cracker for Mudge. Mudge loves crackers and now both of them are happy enjoying a snack. One line per page with colorful drawings make this a perfect introduction to reading. The amusing pictures of puppy Mudge slobbering and drooling and doing anything he can to get his snack will remind kids of some of their behaviors. A Pre-level 1 book in the "Ready-to-Read" series aimed at kids who need word repetition, familiar words and phrases and simple sentences. 2003, Simon & Schuster, Ages 3 to 5.
— Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-In this simple, predictable story, Mudge wants Henry to share his food. The puppy climbs on the boy, sits on top of him, and then drools all over the floor. Finally, the pooch rolls over, prompting Henry to say, "Mudge, you are TOO cute" before giving him a bowl of crackers. The lyrical language and intriguing plotting, hallmarks of Rylant's original "Henry and Mudge" series, are missing here. Mones's colorful illustrations provide the requisite picture clues about the text, but Henry is depicted with angular cheekbones and a spiky haircut that give him a preadolescent appearance. Beginning readers who love dogs will find more satisfaction with Alyssa Satin Capucilli's "Biscuit" books (HarperCollins) or Mary Labatt's Pizza for Sam and Sam Finds a Monster (both Kids Can, 2003) until their skills support the more demanding and gratifying series about these lovable characters.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
