Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3 --This 12th book will please Henry and Mudge's many fans. The story is sure to strike a familiar note with many children--a fear of thunderstorms. These storms make Henry and Mudge downright jumpy; the boy whistles and Mudge whines, paces, and tries to hide (a difficult task for any BIG dog). Henry's father comes to the rescue by inventing a game. The subtle added detail of Mudge shedding fur during the storm is typical of Stevenson's humorous additions to these stories. Beginning readers are sure to hope for another dozen books about this duo. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID

From Kirkus Reviews

Not only the wind but the thunder and lightning send the boy and his dog scurrying for home, where Mudge whines as he circles the kitchen table and Henry whistles the same tunes over and over to keep up his courage. His parents, sipping tea in the middle, ``just looked at each other,'' while Dad creates a diversion: When the lights go out and Mudge hides his head in the couch, he suggests that Henry play the game of ``Crawling-Though-the-Enemy- Lines,'' braving the ``cannon'' he can hear as he makes his way through the dining room with a flashlight to rescue Mudge from the ``enemy couch.'' The 12th totally disarming picture of this nice family solving everyday problems with imagination and a sense of fun. And Stevenson's illustrations are as lively and comical as ever.

Henry and his dog,Mudge must overcome their fears of a summer thunder storm. Henry tries to calm himself by whistling. Mudge whines, walks in circles, hides in the bathroom and even sticks his head between the couch cushions! This book is fun to read and has adorable illustrations. Mudge is a favorite in our household.

Format: Paperback
While most of the Henry and Mudge books are delightful, the one is down right awful. The author uses war as a game to squelch fears about a thunderstorm. Which is more scary? A storm or war? Clearly inappropriate for the young reader - concepts at play that young children cannot comprehend.

This is a favorite of my family, among many excellent Henry and Mudge books. Cynthia Rylant is both funny and poetic, and illustrator Sucie Stevenson is the perfect complement with her wistful watercolor illustrations. Henry's rescue of Mudge from "the enemy couch" is always met with giggles from my daughters.

Mudge is cool. This book is about friendship and being brave. This book is fun and silly too. This book is all about adventures during a storm. From Will, age 8.

Format: Paperback
Henry and Mudge continue to be some of our favorite book characters. My daughter, age 3, especially loves this wonderful book series, although my son, now 7, seems to be growing out of them just a bit. _Henry and Mudge and the Wild Wind_ is not our favorite Henry and Mudge book by any means (we like most the first four, dealing with the seasons of the year), but it fits the familiar format. Henry and Mudge find themselves outside when a summer storm approaches, and beat it for home, since both are a bit afraid of thunderstorms. At home, Mom and Dad make the home safe and cosy by closing windows and making hot chocolate. Although Henry is cajoled into playing a fun pretend game with Dad (a little too war-like for my tastes, though), Mudge can't quite be convinced that thunder isn't scary, but it all comes out OK in the end as they venture out in the fresh clean air after the rainstorm has passed. Although I can understand the book's attempt at making possibly scary things like thunderstorms less scary by showing children that others are afraid also, why put that thought in their heads at all? I'd rather my children enjoy Nature in all her aspects.
