Every August, Henry, his parents, and his big dog Mudge go camping. This year they are going to Bear Lake. They will cook food over a campfire and sleep in a tent. Henry hopes he sees a deer or a raccoon. But he isn't sure he wants to see a bear. After they set up camp, Henry and Mudge explore the woods and enjoy the lake. Henry and his parents eat hot dogs for dinner while Mudge chews on a big log. That night, as they all look up in the sky, they see thousands of stars. And when they go to sleep, they dream happy dreams that don't have any bears in them. The friendship between Henry and Mudge always includes time for surprises and snacks. Listeners of all ages love this best-selling series. And they are among Audie Award winning narrator George Guidall's favorite books to perform. Download and start listening now!

    " Cynthia Rylant, good as always with her craft, writes an interesting serious about a boy and his dog. This one they go camping. Would be great for a spring-reading, encouraging kids to write their own camping adventure. "

    " Book is highlights the importance of family time. It is about a summer family camping trip which includes: hiking, animal watching, and star gazing. Makes me want to go camping. "

    " Rebekah laughed outloud at the part where Mudge chews on the log, because that's all our Black Lab, Calvin, likes to do in our backyard - chew on sticks and logs. He has made an olympic sport of it. That, and we love to camp. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Thomas, Greenville | 6/18/2011

    " This book would go great with a nature study in science. It is a easy read for young students. You would be able to focus on the reading comprehension skill, compare and contrast. You can compare/contrast the things Mudge does on the camping trip to the things Henry does. "
