About This Series

“Bravo Henry and Mudge,” cheers School Library Journal. “May they go on forever.” The Horn Book joins the chorus: “These books are lively, reassuring, and comical – just right for newly independent readers, with cartoon-style illustrations that gallop, skip, and splash right along with the text.”

Henry and his endearing dog Mudge have been beguiling beginning readers ever since their first adventure was published in 1987. Twenty-eight titles are now available in the Ready-to-Read line, each an engaging launch for lively classroom discussions, intriguing projects, and a lifelong love of reading.

Cynthia Rylant is the award-winning author of many wonderful books for children, including the Newbery Medal-winning Missing May, the Newbery Honor book A Fine White Dust, and the Caldecott Honor books When I Was Young in the Mountains and The Relatives Came.

Suçie Stevenson is the illustrator of the Henry and Mudge series. She resides in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
