Henry and his 180-pound dog Mudge have had many adventures together.

From sick days to long weekends, snow days and trips to the beach.

Join Henry and Mudge in 28 different adventures in these wonderful young reader books.


This was my favorite Ready to Read book series growing up and I still own quite a few of them. I read through a few so I could write this review and they brought back some great memories.


These books are simple and fun to read. They are perfect for young children and they’re a step up from typical picture books.


The one book I especially love the most is Henry and Mudge and the Long Weekend. In this book, the family is bored so they build a castle out of a cardboard box. I think this book is the reason why I loved climbing into cardboard boxes so much.


I have a new cousin named Henry and I’ve already sent him several Henry and Mudge for when he gets older. I hope he enjoys them as much as I do.


This weeks’ Weird but True Fact about Growing Up with Dogs

The inspiration for the slobbery dog Mudge in the Henry and Mudge series was a Great Dane that belonged to the illustrator’s brother.
