I was a big fan of this series as a kid. I would keep a few of these tucked somewhere in my classroom for emerging readers at the earlier grades. Read full review

Henry and Mudge are best buds. Young kids love these books because they can actually read the words on their own! The adventure is simple, but fun enough for little ones. Read full review

About the author (1996)

"I live in Oregon with my son, Nate, and our two dogs and one large cat. I have always loved pets. Raised in the country in West Virginia, I was surrounded by hound dogs and barn cats.

"When I grew up and found myself raising a boy and dogs, I was inspired to write the Henry and Mudge stories. I know all about cold shivers, big tests, happy cats, and wild winds. And especially big drooly lovable dogs."

-- Cynthia Rylant
