Written by Cynthia Rylant • Illustrated by Sucie Stevenson

This story is fiction. Henry and Mudge buy a spy kit that is for sale. They use the money from Henry’s piggy bank. They go out and pretend to be spies. Henry gives Mudge the magnifying glass but he drools on the magnifying glass so Henry gives Mudge the hat. To have fun, Mudge rolls in the mud and hides in the garbage. He finds a shoe. Henry finds a note that says E3T27Q5TB. Henry thinks it’s a code. Read to find out if it is a code or a piece of paper.

In my opinion, the book was funny because Mudge rolls in the mud and hides in the garbage and chews on an old shoe. My favorite part was when Henry finds a code. On a scale from 1 – 10, I would give it a 9 because Cynthia Rylant writes with a lot of details. I think it is an amazing series because it teaches you a lot and it is easy to read. I would give it an award if I could.

I recommend this book to people that like spies and mysteries. I think children in kindergarten through 2nd grade will like this book because it is cool and funny. If you like books by Cynthia Rylant, I recommend this book to you.
