It says SNOWMAN CONTEST.
"Wow!" says Henry, and Mudge wags his tail. Then they run home to tell Henry's father.
Can Henry, his father, and his big dog Mudge come up with the best snowman plan and win the contest?

Humor, simple sentence structure, and bright, detailed pictures again prove a winning combination in this, Rylant's nineteenth Henry and Mudge Ready-to-Read book. Henry and Mudge, aided by Henry's father, participate in a snowman-building contest. Although up against some strong competition, their unconventional offering brings chuckles and a third-place prize for creativity. Rylant has a great sense of rhythm and pacing, alternating one or two lines per page with larger blocks of text. Mudge's dog antics effectively introduce the concept of simultaneous story lines, and three subtly defined chapters, with numbered and occasional text-only pages, gently ease kids into traditional book format and inspire reading confidence. The story is enjoyable, but more important, it communicates that contests should be fun, regardless of who wins, particularly when the excitement is shared with loved ones. Shelle Rosenfeld
