From the Publisher:
Cousin Annie is moving -- and she's moving next door to Henry and his big dog Mudge!
Annie is nervous about leaving friends...changing schools...and about what might happen to all her frilly dresses on that moving truck.
Henry wants to help Annie feel better, and with a dog like Mudge around, her move is bound to be a good one after all.
Henry is excited when his cousin Annie announces that she is moving into the house next door to his. He busily starts planning all the good times they'll have as neighbors, but then he realize that Annie isn't as excited about her upcoming move as he is, especially because she's worried about missing her old friends. Luckily, Henry and his loyal dog Mudge know just the right way to help Annie feel better about the move. Color illustrations accompany the text of this beginning reader book.
"Rylant thoughtfully addresses Annie's dilemma, validating a child's concerns and providing a generous solution. Stevenson's gaily colored pen-and-ink illustrations provide a perfect counterpart to the story, deftly highlighting Annie's vulnerability as well as the humor in Henry and Mudge's antics." 08/15/1998
