Mudge is too big for the grandmother's little house, so they will not let him sleep with Henry. Henry gets very scared being in a strange room alone, so he goes outside to sleep with Mudge.… (more)

I have a lot of respect for Henry's mom. In some ways I want to be her, with a big porch & yard & trees, and long dresses and bare feet - but I don't want a huge slobbery dog, thank you.

This is a wonderful story for beginning or emergent readers. The story is very easy to read and is of interest for that age group. This is a realistic fiction which tells about a young boy and his dog and the many things they hear during the night.

This is a sweet little book about the friendship and love between a boy and his dog. It is part of a series, but I still expected it to be stand alone, since it's not really a chapter book (it does have short "sections" though). It's not that I couldn't follow alone, I just thought there may be some info about Henry or Mudge that was given in a previous book that I was missing out on by reading the 9th book first. But it still was good, it had a good message that even if you do worry and those worries come true, they can be fixed.… (more)
