Never mind the recommended reading range on these, I enjoyed them all! Henry is a little boy with orange hair and Mudge is his big dog. The two enjoy each other's company and basically just share great times. While Henry and Mudge are enjoyable characters, I also like the other characters appearing throughout the books (my favorite is Henry's dad!). The books are fully illustrated with colorful pictures. (I especially like The Happy Cat, but I'm sure you and your children will enjoy the whole series!) - Melissa
