Henry & Mudge and the Long Weekend - Rylant

Henry and his dog Mudge are all about a boy and his dog, simplicity of life and all boyhood. I really have enjoyed the books that I have read about them. In this story, they are bored and it looks like it may end up being a boring, long weekend. Ahh but never fear, his parent's imagination livens things up and helps him to see the wonders of a refrigerator box, some paints and sissors. By the end of the book when their box castle is complete they have spend the whole weekend as a family doing good old fashion fun...who knew that kids still liked boxes. :)
