Mom said that Henry's cousin, Annie, was moving in next door. Henry was thinking about Annie because they always played together. When Annie moved in, her face was blotchy from crying. Henry asked her if she was nervous about leaving her friends behind and Annie nodded. Henry asked more questions. Annie was still nervous, but Henry and Mudge helped cheer her up.
Our favorite part is when they were all under the covers because they were afraid. Our favorite character is Mudge because he's a large dog. This story does not relate to my life. I think the pictures helped the story because if you don't look, you won't be interested in just the words.
We think others should read this story because it is a great book and can be ready quickly
