Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Hepler
The eleventh in the "Horrible Harry" series, this one deals with Harry's inventive imagination and the flat-footed literal Mary's unwillingness to play his game. When Harry says it's the Purple People who find lost things, or create some class mischief, Mary demands to see them. The humorous ending features some misplaced grape juice but the strength of these stories are the warm way they portray a typical group of second graders in all the small rivalries that can develop and the kindly teacher who is holding things together in the background. Here she's reading "Alice in Wonderland" and her observation that people need a little magic in their lives is taken to heart.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4Once again, Harry shows that he has a great imagination. Here, he says that there are invisible purple people in Miss Mackle's classroom, but Mary knows there's no such thing. When Miss Mackle, who has been reading Alice in Wonderland, throws a tea party for the class, Harry decides to invite one of the purple people and pulls a prank to prove that they do indeed exist. Harry and his classmates form a wonderful group of characters. There is a certain respectful camaraderie within this circle of friends that is refreshing, and the author demonstrates a clear understanding of the ways of children. The youngsters are funny and intelligent, and readers will no doubt be tempted by Harry's mischievous ideas. Miss Mackle is depicted as an understanding teacher who shares in their camaraderie. Children will love this inventive addition to the "Horrible Harry" books and will look forward to more.Carrie A. Guarria, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Kline (Marvin and the Mean Words, p. 641, etc.) lets loose with the further adventures of Harry, who, in the last week of second grade, has become even more of a cut-up than usual. Miss Mackle is apparently spending the day (Kline is somewhat vague on the timing) reading Alice in Wonderland to the class. Harry insists there are invisible Purple People in the room; after he appears to tame a bee and find a lost lunch card with the "help" of the Purple People, his skeptical classmates start to wonder about his claims. Harry's announcement that a Purple Person will join them at their class tea party produces the book's only moments of suspense; the climax, in which Harry produces one of the Purple People by throwing grape juice on a classmate, is disappointing; then again, Kline isn't attempting to make grand statements or to pound in any major morals. A silly story that unfolds harmlessly.

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.

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

    A Book Review on Horrible Harry and the purple people

    I think it was very interesting about the purple people. I wonder how she came up with the idea of the purple people.
