School Library Journal - 04/01/1998 K-Gr 2--Another success from Rylant and Stevenson. Their 17th visit with Mudge and Henry is full of the series' trademark warmth and gentle humor. Here, Henry, his parents, and the family's oversized pup embark on a camping trip. Henry's mother is the outdoors person. She knew all about camping....Henry's dad didn't know anything about camping. He just came with a guitar and a smile. Stevenson's bright, glowing watercolors will delight readers, and they're sure to chortle over the picture of the jubilant dad with guitar in hand. In one chapter, Henry and his parents are linked physically as well as emotionally as they examine the constellations. Meanwhile, Mudge chews on a huge log, oblivious to the stars. He couldn't get logs this good at home. Mudge loved camping. A shining addition to the series.--Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL - Copyright 1998 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 05/01/1998 In the seventeenth Ready-to-Read adventure about Henry and his big dog, Mudge, they go camping with Henry's parents. In the first chapter, they prepare and pack, and Henry imagines the animals they might see, including, maybe, a scary bear. Then they set up camp, and Henry sees wonderful things, including a fish and a deer, a waterfall and a rainbow. In the last chapter, they watch the stars. Always, Mudge is there for Henry, to add to the fun and snuggle up safe and sound with him. Stevenson's warm, active illustrations extend the gentle words, the physicalness of the pet story, the sense of connection in a solitary place. (Reviewed May 1, 1998) - Copyright 1998 Booklist.
