Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3-Henry and Mudge need no introduction. The dog and his young master continue to delight emergent readers with their exciting adventures marked by affection, joy, surprise and wonder. In this eighth episode of the series by Cynthia Rylant (S&S, 1990), they find a stray cat that has "a saggy belly, skinny legs and fur that looked like mashed prunes." It may be the shabbiest cat, but it soon becomes the happiest one. Henry and Mudge fear that the rightful owner may appear to claim their stray. The dramatic narration by George Guidall intensifies the story with pathos, suspense and humor; his reading pace is perfectly attuned to the ability of young readers. There is always a constant demand for Henry and Mudge adventures.-Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY

These funny, easy to read chapter books are a favorite in our house. Henry and his drooling dog, Mudge are the best of friends and love one another tremendously. In this story, Henry and Mudge learn to love a bedraggled cat that looks like "mushed prunes". The illustrations add to the humor of the story.

Henry And Mudge And The Happy Cat

We have about 9 of these books. Each is a unique story, there is no formula here. They are creative stories that deal with real life situations in a special Henry and Mudge fashion. They are warm and loving and fun. Henry loves his big dog Mudge. I am going to buy more of them.

I liked the book. I especially liked the description of Dave the cat as looking like mashed prunes. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes animals. (Josiah, 8)

Rylant is a great writer for children and relates well to the beginning reader, with sympathetic stories. Her Mr Putter stories are also wonderful.They give a wonderful view of older folks in the community, and are funny.
