Written by Cynthia Rylant • Illustrated by Sucie Stevenson

It was Halloween. Henry loved it. He loved dressing up. Henry didn't like ghost stories. His mother tells ghost stories every year. He was scared when she told a ghost story. Mudge came with him on the rug where his mom was. Mudge was shivering on the rug with him. She told a story about a ghost. Then Mudge was shivering next to Henry and Henry was shivering too. They had a good day.

I think the book is cool because I like the way the pictures are colored. I also like the way the book is written. It is funny and I like the characters.

My favorite character in the book is Mudge because he is funny and cute. He reminds me of my dog.

My favorite part was when Henry and Mudge are playing together because they are having a good time.

I recommend this book because it is funny to read about Henry and Mudge. I think little kids will want to read it because it is funny to read.
