    " I thought that this book was good. It was funny when the cat washed Mudge's feet. It was polite for the cat to send Mudge thirty bones. This story would have been better if there were five pets in the story. It would have been funnier to read about four cats washing Mudges feet. "

    I like that the main character, Henry, isn't the usual kid book kid--precocious and irritating.
