This book is about a boy named Henry and a dog named Mudge. On the weekend, Henry and Mudge were bored. Henry's mom suggested that they all make a castle. So, Henry, his mom, and his dad got some paint and a box. They cut the box up and painted it. Soon, it looked like a castle. Then, they all played in it, even Mudge.

I like this book because I like the idea that Henry's mom had. My favorite part is when they made the castle. The castle looks like fun.

I recommend this book because if you're bored, it can give you an idea.
