Cynthia Rylant is a master at articulating moments of great import to youngsters. Her children's books grapple with moments of great joy and concern and bring them to satisfying conclusions. The winter excitement of participating in a snowman contest at a family- and dog-filled park is the topic of this Henry and Mudge adventure. The narration moves at just the right pace for the young listener to follow with the accompanying text and pictures. The characters are crisply differentiated, and there is pleasant but unobtrusive background music. Will Henry and his dad win a prize? Listen in. A.R.
