From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-Cynthia Rylant's story (S & S, 1996) about a fun-filled day's adventure on the beach between a boy and his 180-pound dog is told with youthful enthusiasm by John Beach. He reads a bit slowly, which will be a great help to beginning readers as they concentrate on both the book and the cassette. The signal to turn the pages sounds like paper turning. Sound effects, such as the tide rushing in and Mudge barking and gobbling down three hot dogs in one bite enhance the narration. Sure to be popular with parents, teachers, and emerging readers, this cassette/book provides an enjoyable reading experience that will boost the confidence of new readers.Carol Katz, Harrison Public Library, NY
