On their first spy mission, Henry tells Mudge to try not to look suspicious. Mudge rolls in the mud and chews on an old shoe, so no one will ever think he's a spy. But then Henry finds a piece of paper with a real spy code written on it. Can the two sneaky spies figure out who is leaving them messages? Cynthia Rylant's popular stories about a boy and his enormous best friend delight young readers and their parents with their fun-filled adventures.

"Almost all kids love stories about dogs, and the Henry and Mudge series epitomizes most kid's fantasies about the perfect boy/dog relationship--they are wonderful friends, they understand each other, and they complement each other in all their adventures. In this story, Henry buys a spy kit, and he and Mudge learn how to be spies. Narrator George Guidall creates a young, enthusiastic voice for Henry, and a large, ponderous, slow voice for Mudge. Guidall reads this fun-filled adventure with humor, and maintains the same vocal inflections to create patterns and repetition, which in turn invite young listeners to participate. A great selection from this well-loved series for beginning readers. W.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
