This year Henry and Mudge are out to make the best Mother's Day lunch ever.
It has to be juicy, crunchy, and perfect for family sharing.
When they select a gorgeous golden pineapple, the menu is shaping up to be anything but dull.
Dad is helping them carve something almost too pretty to eat.
So how will Henry ever stop Mudge from devouring the surprise before Mom sees it?
Since its creation in 1987, the Henry and Mudge series has grown into one of the most beloved and acclaimed beginning-reading series ever. With more than two million copies sold, the American Library Association, the Library of Congress, Parents' Choice, The Horn Book Magazine, the International Reading Association, the American Booksellers Association, and most importantly, the thousands of children who belong to the Henry and Mudge fan club have recommended these wonderful books.
Created by renowned Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and acclaimed illustrator Suçie Stevenson, the Henry and Mudge series is without a doubt a classic for all time.

Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 2. Henry's gigantic, beloved hound Mudge is part of every scene in the twenty-fourth Ready-to-Read chapter book about their adventures. This time the focus is on Henry's bond with his dad as they plan and prepare a funny-food meal for Mother's Day. Everyone loves Mudge, and everything is wonderfully idyllic with friends, family, and the small-town community. The best chapter is about shopping for ingredients; Mudge is welcome in the supermarket, where he has a great time sniffing at the shelves and grabbing a toddler's candy. Bracken's clear pen-and-ink and watercolor pictures also show the intriguing funny-food concoctions Dad and Henry whip up--from a Sweet Potato Shoe and a Tomato Snowman to a Pineapple Sofa--which are bound to get kids laughing, reading, and maybe cooking, too. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2004 Booklist
