The Mud Hole sees some renewed action in Bubba and Beau Meet the Relatives by Kathi Appelt, illus. by Arthur Howard. About the series' first book, Bubba and Beau: Best Friends, PW wrote, ""Appelt's fond voice and Howard's good-humored drawings combine to suggest an easygoing, distinctly Texan family life."" In this third title, the arrival of Bubba's ""froufrou"" relatives makes things a bit uncomfortable for Bubba at first. But it's not long before a trip to the Mud Hole and its aftermath leads to a ""picture-perfect moment in Bubbaville.""
