Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Best friends Harry and Doug triumph in each of the five scenarios in this sequel to Horrible Harry in Room 2B. They overcome an argument that arises when the class has to choose ``secret pals''; put on the best anti-smoking skit in the class; and lead the others in putting homemade spider webs up around the school in commemoration of Charlotte's Web. Despite the genuinely childlike situations it draws on, the book is a disappointment: too often the humor fizzles. The only laugh-out-loud moment comes when the principal volunteers to be Doug's assistant in a show-and-tell presentation; unbeknownst to Mr. Cardini, Doug plans to demonstrate how to spike hair. Other intended jokes fall flat or come at the expense of other classmates, giving a few of the stories a vaguely mean-spirited tinge. Illustrations not seen by PW. Ages 7-10. (May)
Children's Literature - Teresa Jindo
This is another humorous collection of four stories about the students in Room 2B who make school a much more interesting place for everyone at South School. When the principal, Mr. Cardini, assigns the students to do some kind of activity to promote NO SMOKING, Harry and his friends take classwork to new heights by performing a "deadly skit" which definitely gets the point across. Then when Harry thinks it is going to be another boring day, Doug comes to the rescue with a great plan to celebrate how much they enjoyed the book, Charlotte's Web. Harry loves the idea and does something outrageous, which makes Miss Mackle nervous. This is definitely a book for any person who longs for school or work to be more interesting. Harry and his friends turn any ordinary activity or event into an unforgettable experience.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- Room 2B is every child's dream. In these five short, easy-to-read stories of classroom life, Harry, Doug, and their friends enjoy Christmas, performing anti-smoking skits, and reading together. (Teachers should love the idea of celebrating Charlotte's Web with an invasion of paper spiderwebs!) The teacher, the principal, and the librarian are caring, understanding, and adaptable. It's refreshing to find adult authority figures portrayed so warmly. The principal doesn't balk at volunteering as a model in the class speech lesson--even when Doug's demonstration turns out to be how to spike one's hair. Harry's demonstration is ``green slime,'' a kind of Silly Putty concoction made with cornstarch, water and food coloring. The recipe actually works, which will delight experiment-minded readers. For a slightly younger audience than the author's ``Herbie Jones'' series (Putnam), this is one school story which rates an A+. --Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, Ill.
