Henry and Mudge make a funny lunch for Mother's Day. First they have to go shopping at a grocery store to get what they need. They look at different food items and finally decide to get a lot of fruit. They make a very nice lunch and have a pineapple couch for Henry's mother and she loves it.
Our favorite part of the story is when the made an apple father, a peach mother, a plum boy, and a kiwi dog. Our favorite character is Mudge because he smelled the fishy flakes. This story relates to our lives because we get groceries from the grocery store. The pictures help tell the story.
We think others should read this boo because it is funny, weird, and amazing.
