Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this third book of the series (Henry and Mudge and Henry and Mudge in Puddle Trouble), Rylant's portrayal of the small Henry and his affectionate large dog is even better than before. When Henry and Mudge go on a picnic and Henry is stung by a bee, Mudge licks away his salty tears. When Henry gives Mudge a bath, he ends up having to dry both of them with a towel. And when Henry and Mudge play King of the Mountain, they pretend that Mudge is a dragon, and together chase away all pretenders to the throne. Late on summer days, when purple shadows mime their play, Henry and Mudge curl up under their magic tree and sleep "together, on the green hill in their green time." Stevenson's pen-and-ink and watercolors sensitively embellish deftly-told stories about loyalty, love and innocence. Ages 6-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In Henry and Mudge in the Green Time (S&S, 1987) Cynthia Rylant perfectly captures the essence of childhood during the summer with three adventures-a picnic with a most unwelcome bee, bathtime with Mudge, and an imaginary world of kings and dragons on the big green hill. Read slowly enough for beginning readers to follow but rapidly enough to keep the story moving, Suzanne Toren's wonderful narration adds to the gentle tone of the book. Featuring clear page turn signals and rollicking music between the stories, this is a welcome chapter in the life of a boy and his dog.

Format: Paperback
Henry and Mudge are the best of friends. It doesn't matter at all that one of them walks on four legs and drools a lot!!
In this third book in the H&M series, summertime has arrived with adventures galore for boy & dog. Divided into chapters, each functioning as a mini story but related to each other, Henry and his 180-pound dog Mudge explore the wide, green world of summer. In one of the most notable chapters, a bee stings Henry, and boy does it HURT!! Fortunately, good ol' Mudge is there to make Henry feel better (a good face-licking by Mudge helps Henry forget his pain at being stung-Mudge likes the salty taste of tears).
As a teacher I love the H&M series because the illustrations are always bright, vibrant and immediately draw my students into the story. I also love the short, easy sentences, which are perfect for beginning-to-intermediate readers who feel that they're ready to tackle chapter books. As a parent, I love the way that this series is about the small adventures in life that are right on the level of the reader. Nothing blows up, aliens don't invade the countryside sucking out peoples' innards, and the world isn't narrowly saved from oblivion. Mudge is a wonderfully realistic dog that is completely devoted to Henry, like most real dogs are devoted to the children they live with.
As of this writing, there are some 20 H&M books, each a small treasure and each a wonderful read. Though they're numbered, it's not at all necessary to begin with #1 and progress up to #20; readers can grab whichever title catches their whim and follow along with the adventures. I myself have read them all and am not so patiently waiting for the next ones to come out. Each book comes highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
My 4-year-old son, Frank, has 16 of the 18 (?) books that are available in this collection, and although all of them come hightly recommended, I believe Green Time to be the best. This book highlights all that is good about a boy and his dog. Rylant never personifies Mudge too much but depicts their relationship beutifully. When my son read about Mudge getting a bath, he giggled as each part was washed. But the biggest surprise was watching his sheer delight as Mudge shook from head-to-toe. He understands that Henry would cry when he gets stung by a bee, and he laughed when Mudge eats popcorn. These books are simple and kind, and I hope there are more.

Henry and Mudge books are some of the best books available to beginning readers, and parents would be hard-pressed not to enjoy them as well. While a few of the books in the series show Henry's idyllically happy parents in a way that might make children from less traditional families sad or "homesick" for that situation, this particular book is purely about a little boy, his big dog, their imaginations, and being a kid in the summer. Cynthia Rylant's writing is fun yet poetic, and Sucie Stevenson's illustrations are charming as always.

My 7 year old son recently borrowed this book from his school library.
Henry and Mudge in the Green Time is part of the Henry and Mudge series. When my son checked out this book, he know that it was the 3rd book in the series, but it made no difference. I couldn't tell that we missed any important information by not reading the first 2 books. You can tell that Henry and Mudge are the best of friends that share many adventures together.

This book is about Henry and his dog Mudge. In this installment, they set out on a picnic, Mudge gets a bath, and they have a wonderful adventure on the green hill near their home.

Henry and Mudge are the best of friends and they care for each other deeply. Just from reading this one book, I don't think you would see one without the other.

My son just started reading chapter books, and I don't think he could have picked out a better one to start with. The story is great, and has colorful illustrations. The text is large and easy for younger readers. I was worried that when he started chapter books that he would panic, just due to the fact he is not use to them, and the idea of chapters. The chapters are short. To get him use to the idea , we broke it down to reading one chapter a night. In this book, their are only 3 chapters. He could probably read the whole book in one sitting, but I wanted to get him use to reading chapter books first. He also got another book in the series. He enjoyed this story a lot, so I am sure we will read more than one chapter a night.

A great beginners chapter book. I look forward to reading more in this series with my son, and seeing what adventures this duo embark in next.

A Kid's Review on March 29, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I think this is a very good book because it describes the fun-filled adventures Henry and Mudge have in full detail. What I mostly liked about the book was the vocabulary the author uses. The author uses simple words that everyone can understand so that people of all ages can join in on Henry and Mudge's good times.
