Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-In this 18th adventure of these two pals, Rylant and Stevenson have combined their keen perspectives on growing up, their sensitivity to the concerns of children, and their senses of humor for another totally satisfying book. Henry knows his "careful" cousin Annie will be nervous about her move. In fact, the girl is so anxious about leaving her friends, changing schools, and the fate of her favorite clothes (frilly dresses, shiny shoes, and lace hankies) on the moving truck that she breaks out in red blotches. On the big day, Henry helps her deal with her anxiety just as he would-he tells her to crawl under the blankets in the back of his family's car with Mudge, his affectionate large pup and best friend. Hiding out during the move and making a "new-house wish" is the perfect prescription for Annie's fears. The pen-and-ink and watercolor cartoons perfectly express the emotional nuances of the text.

From Booklist

Gr. 2^-3. You might think that after 17 books about sweet Henry and his drooly canine companion, this series of beginning readers would be wearing thin. Not so, judging by this fresh and soothing entry that gets to the heart of a problem lots of children have to face. Annie is Henry's cousin, and though she's a little obsessive about her frilly dresses and her shiny shoes, she can still throw a mean Frisbee and is lots of fun. Henry is delighted when he hears that she's moving next door, and he's very understanding--even sharing his beloved Mudge--when he realizes Annie has a case of moving-day jitters. Stevenson's exuberant art adds a great touch of comedy to a story that will make children long to have an intuitive cousin like Henry living in the house next door. Stephanie Zvirin

By P. Gould VINE VOICE on February 19, 2008
Format: Paperback
My 1st grader loves reading Henry and Mudge books. The charming water color and ink pictures--and the realistic kid adventures--create an engaging experience for early readers. The author does an almost magical job relaying the fears, temptations and ambitions of childhood. Also, many kids can identify with Henry's passionate love for his big dog, Mudge. Plus, this series will appeal to both boys and girls.

The series is at the 1st grade reading level. This book is a "chapter" book (not a "baby" book) with 3 Chapters, and about 40 pages of half text, half artwork. (Just to give you an idea of the reading level, the Henry and Mudge books are easier than Magic Tree House, but harder than the advanced Bob books.)

This particular book deals with the excitement and fear of moving from one house to another. Annie, Henry's beloved frisbee throwing cousin, moves in next door to Henry. She is nervous about the move but ends up adjusting well. It would be a wonderful book for a family who is moving, but the fears described--and creatively dealt with--also apply to many other childhood transitions.

Note: you might want to purchase "Henry And Mudge the First Book" and also "The Careful Cousin" book before this book or with this book. Those two books introduce the characters used in the rest of the series.

Enjoy!

The compassion and empathy Henry has for Annie during Annie's move is a good lesson. He doesn't care a bit about hankies and frilly dresses, but he know Annie does and he helps comfort her while all her special things are packed for the move. It is the children that comfort one another, rather than the parents, but it is done in a way that a parent might comfort a child.
