Henry and Mudge were waiting for Annie, Henry's cousin. Annie is careful when she's around Mudge. Henry asks if she wants to look at his fish in his messy room. After that, they eat lunch and play Frisbee all day long. When they go inside, they are dirty and eat dirty cookies. The next day, Annie leaves and Henry and Mudge can't wait to see her again.
My favorite part of the story is when Mudge dances because he looks funny and silly. My favorite character is Mudge because he's playful and he drools a lot. This story relates to my life because I was so excited when my cousin came over.
This story has many pictures that help tell the story. I think people should read this story because it is interesting and very funny.
