Booklist Review

Gr. 1-2. The Rylant and Stevenson combo offer a sixth adventure as brisk and invigorating as the ocean breezes when Henry, Henry's father, and Henry's massive woofer, Mudge, head for the ocean in four more lively stories. Mudge gets his first taste of crashing salty water as Henry and his dad frolic in the waves; a round of hot dogs, a sand-castle creation, and Mudge's encounter with a crab round out the discovery- filled day. Propelled by the perky illustrations, new readers, especially those familiar with the other Henry and Mudge books, will tag right along on this jaunt. -- Phillis Wilson.


School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-- Rylant and Stevenson once again demonstrate that simple pleasures can be adventurous. Henry, his father, and his big dog Mudge spend a day at the beach while on summer vacation. Leisurely activities such as splashing in the waves, eating hot dogs and cherry sno-cones, and chasing an errant crab provide a day's adventures. The text is straightforward, easy to read, and conveniently broken into four chapters. Full-color illustrations are comic, cartoon-like, and appear to jaunt through the pages. Text and illustrations combine to create a well-paced, satisfying book well suited for independent reading or for sharing aloud. Henry and Mudge fans won't be disappointed with this newest offering. --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
