School Library Journal - 02/01/2003 K-Gr 2-When Uncle Jake builds Henry a beautiful tree house, there is a big problem-Mudge cannot climb trees. Unwilling to hurt his uncle's feelings, the boy tries staying in the structure for short periods, then getting down to be with his dog. When the grown-ups notice what is going on, they come up with the perfect solution-the tree house is rebuilt in Henry's bedroom so boy and dog can enjoy it together. The family dynamics are sensitive, warm, and funny. Pen-and-ink and watercolor art illustrates the action, and the final spread on which the tree house is next to Henry's bed is just unexpected enough to elicit giggles. A welcome addition to a deservedly popular series.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information. - Copyright 2003 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.

Booklist - 01/01/2003 Rylant's twenty-first Ready-to-Read book about Henry and his beloved dog, Mudge, continues the tradition of a warm family pet story told in clear, lovely words from the child's viewpoint. Uncle Jake comes for a visit. He is big and burly and friendly, a lot like Mudge. In fact, Henry and Mudge like him a lot, and he builds Henry an exciting tree house. There's only one trouble: Mudge can't climb the tree, and Henry feels lonely up there without his soul mate. The resolution is fun, and so is Henry's conflict between adventure and loyalty and love. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations aren't by Sucie Stevenson this time, but series fans won't notice much difference in the bright, active pictures that show Henry's physical connection with his big, slobbery, protective, needy friend. A Junior Library Guild selection. - Copyright 2003 Booklist.
