Henry's parents are going to a Valentine's dance. Henry and Mudge go to Mrs. Hopper's house. Mrs. Hopper has eleven cats and plays the violin. She has many costumes upstairs. All three of them dress up in costumes. Henry and Mudge go home wearing costumes and everyone laughs.
My favorite part of the the story was when they tried on costumes. I liked it because they were wearing funny costumes. Mudge is my favorite character because he likes cats, people, and costumes. This story relates to me because I like wearing costumes. The pictures showed me what the characters were doing.
I think others should read this story because it's very funny. It is also entertaining and hilarious.
