Overview

Another uproarious caper in the Horrible Harry series, and this time Harry's not the one breaking the rules!

Everyone in Room 3B knows that if Miss Mackle sees you playing with toys at your desk, she'll confiscate them for her June Box. So when a substitute teacher catches good girl Song Lee with a pink origami pig, into the June Box it goes. The problem is that this origami was to be a birthday present for Song Lee's grandmother. So Song Lee does the unthinkable: she breaks into the June Box to free her pig. Now Harry, Doug, and the rest of the kids have to work together--before they all wind up in horrible trouble!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Third grader, Doug and his friend Harry are again center stage in this school centered story that is the latest in many tales with these same characters. The June box is the holding place for all the things taken from the class by the teacher, Miss Mackle. These include Harry's stub people and Dexter's Elvis bobblehead. One morning the youngsters are unpleasantly surprised when greeted by a substitute by the name of Mrs. Bernbotham. She is known as "the meanest substitute teacher on the planet." This comes through loud and clear in the wonderful black and white sketch on page ten. Mrs. Bernbotham promptly writes a difficult math assignment on the board and tells everyone to get busy. Trouble begins when Song Lee shows Doug the origami pig she made as a birthday present for her grandmother who lives in Korea. Harry admires the pig and makes pig noises, causing Song Lee to laugh. Mrs. Bernbotham promptly confiscates the pig for the June box. How Song Lee gets her pig back so it can be sent to Korea involves several twists and turns, but eventually all turns out well. Newly independent readers are sure to enjoy and relate to this realistic portrayal of the ups and downs of school life. If other titles in this series are popular, add this to the collection.

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.

Suzy taught in 5th and 6th grades at Shannon Elementary School in Richmond, California for 3 years, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Southwest Elementary School in Torrington, Connecticut for 24 years before retiring this past June. She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag. They have two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and four grandchildren: Jake, Kenna, Gabby and Saylor. A fifth grandchild is due in September, 2006. Suzy's mother just turned 96. 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.
