Grade 1-3-- Rylant and Stevenson once again demonstrate that simple pleasures can be adventurous. Henry, his father, and his big dog Mudge spend a day at the beach while on summer vacation. Leisurely activities such as splashing in the waves, eating hot dogs and cherry sno-cones, and chasing an errant crab provide a day's adventures. The text is straightforward, easy to read, and conveniently broken into four chapters. Full-color illustrations are comic, cartoon-like, and appear to jaunt through the pages. Text and illustrations combine to create a well-paced, satisfying book well suited for independent reading or for sharing aloud. Henry and Mudge fans won't be disappointed with this newest offering. --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library
