Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Harry loves all things slimy and gross. His classmate Song Lee is having a party at Mountainside Park, a theme park with lots of rides. No one is surprised that the Haunted House is Harry's favorite ride. They are surprised, however, to learn that Harry is terrified of the Drop of Doom, which plunges riders 13 stories in an elevator free fall. Harry has to endure the ride or he will have to endure endless teasing next year in third grade. Horrible Harry's predicament will be familiar to many readers.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3--It's the last day of school for Horrible Harry and the 2B gang and Song Lee has invited the class to a party at the local amusement park to celebrate. With his usual exuberance and brashness, Harry brags that he goes on all the scary rides. His nemesis, Sidney, hears this and challenges him to a ride in the Drop of Doom. As he tells it, "...in this hotel is an elevator. You get in the elevator and go up to the thirteenth floor. Suddenly, SNAP! The cable breaks, and the elevator drops thirteen floors before it stops." Harry looks sick and later admits to his friends that the one thing he's afraid of is elevators. Suspense builds until the final chapter in which the second grader overcomes his phobia, exclaiming, "It's Wonderland!" Readers will join in the laughter when they learn that Sidney had his eyes closed during the descent. Another perfect chapter book for transitional readers.--Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL

Suzy and Rufus have been married for thirty-eight years. They met in the state where they both grew up: California. Suzy grew up in Berkeley and Rufus in Sacramento. Suzy graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in European history. She met Rufus at the Davis campus while attending that campus for a year. They got married and lived in different places, including Canada, before settling into Connecticut, the state they now call home.

She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag.

She dedicated her most recent book, Horrible Harry Takes the Cake to her.

Suzy and Rufus enjoy attending UConn football and basketball games, and Suzy uses the UConn library as a reference for her writing facts.

    Great book for boys!

    My grandson loves the Horrible Harry books...he thought this book was very funny, and would not stop reading it until he finished the last page.
