Henry and Mudge and the Great Grandpas by: Cynthia Rylant - Monarch
Henry, Henry's dog, Mudge, and Henry's parents visit Henry's Great Grandpa Bill in this house where he lives with a bunch of other grandpas. After visiting with the grandpas, Henry and Mudge go off on an adventure towards the woods. Soon, they come to a pond and want to swim, but they know that they cannot swim without supervision. They travel back to the house and find out that all the grandpas want to go swimming too. I did not like this book, it did not have a plot or any interesting events happening; the illustrations were dull and boring. However, this book could be used for early readers who are ready to make the transition to chapter books.
