This book is about a boy named Henry and his dog named Mudge who want to become spies. It takes place in a town. They walk in the street looking for clues. In the beginning Henry was walking his dog Mudge past a store. He saw a spy kit and he wanted to buy it. Then when they went home Henry started looking for clues. At the end, Henry and Mudge found all the clues and met a boy and his dog. They all became friends. They started a club called Crackers. They became very good at finding clues.

I enjoyed this book because I like to find clues and solve mysteries. I liked the part when Henry and Mudge met another boy and dog that were doing the same thing as them. They all became friends and started a club. The pictures matched the story.

I would recommend this book to first and second graders because it was exciting. The boys were able to crack codes by following clues.
