Cynthia Rylant has created another entertaining story in her extensive Henry and Mudge series. The dynamic duo of boy and dog has charmed many young readers; in this story Rylant focuses on the mystery and fascination of a code-cracking spy kit. This subject makes for absorbing read-along material, and narrator Suzanne Toren's kid-friendly pace is also just right: not too slow (boring), but perfectly timed to allow readers a moment to enjoy the funny pictures. Light, entertaining sound effects capturing doggy drool and barked affection add to the fun, while musical expression in the background rounds out the listening experience. J.C.G.
