Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Horrible Harry is bored after having indoor recess for the fourth time. With so much inside time on their hands, the class quickly starts to wonder about what is in the locked closet. Harry finds ways to look for clues as to what is behind the old door. Pretty soon the whole class is interested in the lost checkers, eyeballs, and other objects that turn up. Even the Principal and other teachers start to get excited over this mystery. Although the closet is the main mystery, Harry also tries to figure out something that is even more important than a locked closet—the mystery of whether Miss Mackle will be moving to Oklahoma. Kids who have read the other Horrible Harry adventures will love to read as Harry and his friends look under the door, find out about who used the closet, and explore the attic in order to find a way inside. Readers will also laugh at Harry's version of a volcano exploding. Kline has given readers another delightful look into the life of Horrible Harry. 2004, Viking, Ages 6 to 10.
—Joella Peterson
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Another delightful Horrible Harry episode begins when Miss Mackle's students become bored after many days of bad weather and indoor recess. However, things get exciting when Harry proposes that Room 3B solve the mystery of the locked closet, which has been closed off for nearly 50 years. Harry gets his classmates and some of the teachers to help out with the investigation, which leads to many surprises including the discovery of a hidden trap door, and what they think are real eyeballs. When the closet is finally opened, each student delights in newfound treasures of old comic books, 1950s children's classic stories, and some board games. Black-and-white illustrations are scattered throughout. Kline writes in a humorous style that rings true and her characters and realistic story have great appeal for reluctant readers, especially boys.-Kristina Aaronson, Henniker Community School, NH Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
