Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Another humorous story about Harriet, whose life-like robot baffles classmates and teachers alike. Ages 7-11. (May)
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3 Harriet is at it again! She is determined to give her friend Anthea a very special birthday gift. So she turns her creative and inventive abilities to building a robot, determined that Dolly will be the best and biggest doll in the neighborhood. Anthea is thrilled with her gift, but when the girls take Dolly along to school to help out with spelling tests and math problems, outlandish and hilarious things begin to happen. They discover, to their dismay, that Harriet is not as much in control of Dolly as she had hoped. This outrageous and funny story will keep young readers turning the pages as they delight in the chaos and confusion created by Harriet, Anthea, and Dolly. This rambunctious sequel to Harriet and the Crocodiles (1984) and Harriet and the Haunted School (1985, both Little) is a marvelous addition to humor shelves. Bonnie Wheatley, Ravenscroft Lower School, Raleigh, N.C.
