Henry, his parents, and (of course) Mudge the dog go to visit Henry's Grandpa who lives with other 'Grandpas' in senior housing. All the Grandpas delight in the company of young Henry and the sloppy kisses they get from Mudge. When Henry finds a nearby pond, they all go swimming, relax in the warm grass, and tell stories. A cheerful installment in the popular Henry and Mudge series.

The buccaneer bunnies who sail the Salty Carrot are bad, bad bunnies indeed. Barnacle Black Ear, the captain, is the baddest of them all, but his son Henry is a disappointment. Henry would rather read than shout, 'Shiver Me Timbers!' or make prisoners walk the plank. None of the pirates appreciate Henry's love for books until the Salty Carrot is lost in a sudden storm and they need Henry's knowledge to survive.

Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
It's Thanksgiving and the Bobowicz family has reserved a turkey (which nobody really liked) at the butcher shop. When young Arthur is asked to get the turkey, he learned there was no turkey for the Bobowicz family. His mother sent him back out to find any bird, but all the stores were sold out. Feeling like a failure, Arthur headed home. Then, he spotted a sign in an apartment window- Professor Mazzocchi Inventor of the Chicken System by Appointment. So Arthur rang the bell. Professor Mazzocchi had chickens and the one he offered Arthur weighed 266 lbs. and was taller than him. Arthur named the chicken Henrietta and walked her home to show his family. No one could bear eating Henrietta so she became the family pet and they had meatloaf for Thanksgiving. As you can imagine, a chicken that large can cause some problems. Quickly, the Bobowicz family realized she was too big to keep. When she got loose the people of Hoboken did not know what it was and panicked. They thought she was a white gorilla or a polar bear. The mayor of Hoboken hired a Chicken Catcher who turned out to be a swindler. Arthur knew he had to go back to Professor Mazzocchi to learn what to do. Professor Mazzocchi convinced the mayor that if all the citizens of Hoboken would accept Henrietta and call her by her name, everything would be all right. And they did.
