Horn Book Review

Fiction: ER When Henry is sick, Mudge is a loyal companion entertaining the invalid, and when Mudge catches a cold, Henry takes his turn playing nurse. An adventure that is sure to make any young patient perk up. Review, p. 795. Horn Rating: Superior, well above average. Reviewed by: esw (c) Copyright 2010.

Kirkus Review

In the seventh book of their adventures, Mudge the St. Bernard loves Henry's sick days: he gets to eat the crackers that Mom gives Henry. Then Mudge gets sick, visits the vet, and gets pampered with bed rest and a special diet--but Henry eats the crackers--till Mudge is well enough to eat his own crackers and to be kissed again. This affectionate pair is as amusing--and heartwarming--as ever. Copyright ©Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.


Booklist Review

Gr. 1. The sixth in the lighthearted series that features young Henry and his big dog, Mudge. Though Henry is used to having colds, when Mudge falls ill, the whole family gets upset. A trip to the vet for the shivery and frightened Mudge elicits the diagnosis--a cold. Now it is Henry's turn to nurse and be near his dog just as Mudge has always stayed near him. Short and sweet, but packed with real-life emotion, this easy reader should be just as popular with kids as its predecessors. Stevenson's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are bright and inviting, giving the book pick-me-up appeal. --Ilene Cooper
