Jacket Description/Back:
In Henry and Mudge's eighteenth adventure, Henry's cousin Annie is moving -- right next door to Henry! Annie likes Henry and Mudge, but she's nervous about leaving her friends, and about changing schools, and about what might happen to her things on the moving truck. She's so nervous she's broken out in blotches. But Henry knows just the thing for a bad case of nerves -- a snuggle under a blanket with a big dog like Mudge!

[A] fresh and soothing entry that gets to the heart of a problem lots of children have to face. . . . Stevenson's exuberant art adds a great touch of comedy to a story that will make children long to have an intuitive cousin like Henry living in the house next door". -- Booklist
