Henry is invited to a sleepover at his friend Patrick's house. His big, slobbering dog Mudge is invited, too. In fact, all the boys are bringing their dogs. Everyone will stay up late. Best of all, Henry says, there will be popcorn. Mudge gets very excited because popcorn is one of his favorites.

When the night comes, the boys and dogs gather in Patrick's attic and have a great time. They play all kinds of games, but nobody can play with the bowling set, because a bulldog keeps stealing the pins. They eat pizza and watch a movie about giant lizards. There is still lots of popcorn to eat before everybody falls asleep.

Newbery Medal winner Cynthia Rylant has sold more than two million copies of her Henry and Mudge adventures, which comprise one of the most beloved beginning reader series of all time. Each story available from Recorded Books is warmly narrated by AudioFile Golden Voice George Guidall. Download and start listening now!

    " Who on Earth would have six little boys AND THEIR DOGS over for a sleepover? Who cares. It's another fun H&M book. I've liked others more, but this one is fine. "

    " Our girls aren't quite ready for a sleepover of this magnitude, but they love having sleepovers with their cousins and next-door neighbors. This is a good way to introduce the idea of a big group sleepover, and it's a fun book to read aloud. "
