Booklist Review

Gr. 1. The sixth in the lighthearted series that features young Henry and his big dog, Mudge. Though Henry is used to having colds, when Mudge falls ill, the whole family gets upset. A trip to the vet for the shivery and frightened Mudge elicits the diagnosis--a cold. Now it is Henry's turn to nurse and be near his dog just as Mudge has always stayed near him. Short and sweet, but packed with real-life emotion, this easy reader should be just as popular with kids as its predecessors. Stevenson's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are bright and inviting, giving the book pick-me-up appeal. --Ilene Cooper
