Booklist Review

Gr. 1-2. When Henry's mother decides that she wants fresh eggs, blueberries, and corn, the whole family drives to the country. Excited to be on a farm, Henry and his dog, Mudge, meet a variety of animals. Most are friendly, but an aggressive goose unnerves the enormous Mudge until he finally barks and sends her running away in a panic. The simple tale unfolds in three short chapters. Beginning readers will enjoy the upbeat story; the likeable, familiar characters; and the cheerful, ink-and-watercolor illustrations. A satisfying adventure for Henry and Mudge. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2003 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-In this entry in the popular series, Henry's mother wants "farm-fresh" eggs, blueberries, and corn, prompting a family trip to the country. While his parents load up on produce, Henry and Mudge have a memorable encounter with a goose. Rylant's sparkling use of language and clever plotting are fully realized in this satisfying story for beginning readers. Bracken's vivid pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations "in the style of Su?ie Stevenson" extend the story. A fresh addition.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI (c) Copyright 2010.
