From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Henry and his devoted canine, Mudge, share some scary moments when the big dog gets sick and has to go to the vet. It had always been Mudge who stayed by a sick Henry; always Mudge who loved Henry's sick days because he could stay with Henry , who fed him the crackers that Henry's parents kept bringing to the sick bed. Now, it is Mudge who is lying around and able only to wag his tail when Henry wakes in the morning. The sad, fearful expression on Henry's face as he and his mother take Mudge to the vet will bring tears of compassion. The picture of Henry holding Mudge's tail as he listens to the diagnosis captures the unspoken, "Don't worry, I'm with you." Children will respond warmly to the kind, female vet whose assurances give Henry a laugh. At home, Henry pampers Mudge to help him get over his cold and fever--even eating the crackers Mudge refuses. After a few days, Mudge gobbles the crackers and is back in good health. The bond of caring and special friendship between these two young friends is once again humorously and sensitively delivered. This easy-to-read, three-chapter book is certain to be as popular as the others in this series. --Ellen Dibner, East School, Long Beach, NY
